About Jantus M
There are no upcoming events
Jantus (1994, Buenos Aires) is a painter from Argentina that currently lives in Barcelona. During his first years (2012-2017) he studied in National University of Art in Buenos Aires. At the same time during those years he went to Richard Sturgeon´s workshop where he began developing his first artworks. He built his compositions with color stains and rough and impulsive brushstrokes that gave dynamism to the images.
During 2018 he traveled to Spain where he did his first solo exhibition at Galería Cor, in the gothic quarter of Barcelona. Later, he went to Japan to exhibit at the Tokyo International Art Fair 2018. Furthermore, he finished 2018 with two more exhibitions: Parallax Art Fair in London (UK) and BELA Biennial in Helsinki (Finland).
His art is brutal and might be considered neoexpressionist. A noisy sensation comes out of the extreme contrast of color and the rawness of the process is felt in the artworks. Structurally, there is no lead narrative, no focal space, unless you locate that, by default, at the centre of the buzzing, vibrating canvas. There is a wild jumping atmosphere around the whole plane of inescapable, hyperactive brightness that calls the attention to all places at once. The overall sense of explosiveness comes from the gestures which are bold and almost brutal. Vibrancy glows to the spectators eyes out of the colors which clash to each other in an organic environment.
