About the artist
Juan Aponte was born in Peru in 1959. During his childhood, he was introduced to the world of art by his uncle, who used a butter spatula to paint in oils. This experience instilled in him a love for the use of color and materials in art, which would shape his artistic expression for years to come.
Later, Juan enrolled in the School of Fine Arts, where he received a traditional education. He graduated with honors and was invited to stay on as a professor of painting and composition, a role he held for ten years.
In 2003, he moved to the United States to explore the work of the American abstract expressionists, whom he had long admired. Over time, he gradually transitioned from figurative art to gesturally abstract painting, which he considers his true calling.
Art ignites passion and evokes emotion, and sometimes, it speaks directly to you. If the piece before you has captured your heart, don’t hesitate to express your interest. Make an offer that reflects the value you see in the artwork. Fill out the form below, and let’s start a conversation. Your perfect piece is only an offer away.
A singular creation, the only one of its kind.
A set of works limited to a predetermined number of identical pieces, each numbered and acknowledged within the series.
Artworks reproduced continuously, often not numbered, reflecting an ongoing availability.
The production run has ceased; however, the total number of artworks created remains unspecified.
A Proof of Provenance is an official document that establishes the genuine nature of an artwork. Issued by a credible authority, this may be signed directly by the creator, the gallery representing the creator, or the specialist who collaborated with the artist. In cases of traded artworks, authenticated bodies or designated foundations may issue such certifications.
These documents are comprehensive, usually detailing the artist’s name, specifics of the artwork (including title, creation date, materials used, size), and ideally, an image of the art piece itself.
