  • A selection of the #beautiful and #haunting #paintings of #JulioReyes.  His work is so accomplished.

Born in #Hollywood and raised in the urban sprawls of #LosAngeles, Julio Reyes’ artistic aesthetic was shaped early on by the platinum light and expansive concrete horizons of #southernCalifornia.  Often depicting lone figures within the context of a landscape, Reyes’ chooses his subjects carefully. His works focus on intimate dramas, revealing brief moments of unnoticed grandeur, tender souls grappling with the pressures of modern life.  These sensitive portrayals are the result of careful observation, intimate knowledge of his subjects, and are executed with finesse and virtuosity.  His #landscapes and still lives are imbued with implied narrative and hidden meaning, and a highly personal symbolic language born of Reyes’ experience growing up in the Western United States, as the son of immigrant parents.

About his work, Reyes’ observes: “The most meaningful sources of inspiration in my art are the people, places, and things I know best.  As a child, my imagination was fueled by family stories of tremendous adversity, sorrow, perseverance, and the incredible deeds of those who journeyed far to become American citizens.  As such, I have always been moved by the human capacity to love, dream, and persevere, with great courage and sincerity, in spite of what can seem like a vast and un-sympathetic Nature.  To a cynical art world that may sound silly, but to me it is one of the miracles, and beautiful mysteries of life.” A selection of the #beautiful and #haunting #paintings of #julioreyes.  His work is so accomplished.

About his work, Reyes’ observes: “The most meaningful sources of inspiration in my art are the people, places, and things I know best.  As a child, my imagination was fueled by family stories of tremendous adversity, sorrow, perseverance, and the incredible deeds of those who journeyed far to become American citizens.  As such, I have always been moved by the human capacity to love, dream, and persevere, with great courage and sincerity, in spite of what can seem like a vast and un-sympathetic Nature.  To a cynical art world that may sound silly, but to me it is one of the miracles, and beautiful mysteries of life.” A selection of the #beautiful and #haunting #paintings of #julioreyes.  His work is so accomplished. Born in #hollywood and raised in the urban sprawls of #losangeles, Julio Reyes’ artistic aesthetic was shaped early on by the platinum light and expansive concrete horizons of #southerncalifornia.  Often depicting lone figures within the context of a landscape, Reyes’ chooses his subjects carefully.
