Johan Paul GALUÉ

FOR ENGLISH VERSION, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN


Johan Paul Galué es un joven artista venezolano dedicado al arte figurativo, nacido en Maracaibo en 1981.
Su pintura ha ocupado diversas exposiciones colectivas e individuales desde el año 2002, obteniendo la aceptación masiva del público en general y de los expertos.
Su propuesta plástica se centra en la figura humana pero sin mayores preocupaciones por imponer estructuras convencionales en la composición. Así podremos apreciar que las figuras se encuentran dispuestas de modos diversos, revelando principalmente su valor plástico propio con independencia a la tela en general.
Generalmente en las obras de Galué, se destaca una figura de mayor tamaño, resuelta con mayor atención en sus detalles de línea, valor y proporción, inspirada en algún rostro o expresión corporal de personajes de la vida diaria de su ciudad.
Galué sabe intercalar la mancha libre con la figura detallada, junto con el trazo abierto usando el color del fondo del soporte como otro medio expresivo de la obra.
El ser humano es siempre el objeto principal de su obra, dejando por sentada su práctica constante en el oficio del dibujo y una aplicación referencial de los íconos de la simbología de su vida cotidiana.





Johan Paul GALUÉ

Johan Paul Galué is a young Venezuelan artist dedicated to figurative art, born in Maracaibo in 1981. His painting has shown in several collective and individual exhibitions since 2002, obtaining the mass acceptance of the general public and experts.
His plastic proposal focuses on the human figure but without real concern about imposing conventional structures in the composition. Thus we can appreciate how the figures are arranged in different ways, revealing mainly their own plastic value independently of the fabric in general.
Generally in Galué's works, a larger figure stands out, resolved with greater attention to its details of line, value and proportion, inspired by some face or body expression of characters from the daily life of his city.
Galué knows how to interleave the free approach with the detailed figure, along with the open stroke using the background color of the support as another expressive medium of the work.
The human being is always the main object of his work, leaving for granted his constant practice in the craft of drawing and a referential application of the icons of the simbology of his daily life.


Galué´s work is a poetic tribute that takes its roots in the Latin American literary movement "Magical Realism" and breaks with classic narrative mechanisms. His plastic proposal focuses on the human figure but without real concern about imposing conventional structures in the composition. The elements crowding his paintings are memories, daily activities and typical expressions of the Caribbean people, that are a constant feature and allow distinctive readings and interpretations.
