Juan Francisco Casas is a visual artist, curator, and poet. In his production, he uses pens to create images, and this technique forms part of the discourse about his work. When he started with the technique, the artist thought he would like to use something from his everyday life to produce, and that is how he came up with the pen.
Juan Francisco Casas believes that in times of overexposure to images, high quality photos, painting is a form of resistance and of rescuing the human side.
The artist has exhibited in the Kunsthalle Munich, Kunsthalle in Emden (Germany), Kunsthall Rotterdam (Netherlands), Cube Museum Seongnam, (South Korea), ARTIUM Museum in Vitoria and Da2 Museum in Salamanca.
