Juan F. Bejar

Visit Website

Spanish-born Juan F. Bejar's artwork is centered around children. Often shown against highly elaborate surroundings and in heavy garments, Bejar's style is inspired by Spanish court jesters. Describing his artwork as "poisoned sweets" of reality and naivety, Bejar is deliberate in his use of symbolism to expand the narrative belying his paintings.
