Juan Carlos Gayoso´s interview in Caracas Virtual.com

 

Juan Carlos Gayoso is caraquenian by decision. At the young age of 8 years, his first drawing, chinese painting and water painting begin, receiving his first scholar awards. With his mother´s help, he begins studies in Montevideo´s Bellas Artes School, beginning in his specialization in drawing, painting, sculpture, PLUMILLA and other combined media. At thirteen years old he meets master Jorge Tarallo, to who friedship unites. He shares for some time the deep knowledge of oil techniques with this master, specializing then in theese techniques.

 

He spends his first years in Montevideo, then he moves to Buenos Aires, where he installs his first art gallery (Rocar), he travels to Rio de Janeiro where he makes some expositions. Back in Montevideo, he establishes a relationship with Dimaca and Degal galleries in Caracas, receiving mail from them, which motivates him to travel to Venezuela because of it´s high poli chromatic landscapes and tropical light.

 

Used to the light of the south of the continent, whose shadows are grey and lead color, making the artist´s palette a cold color´s gamma, he was impressed by the richness of light in the shadows, with bueish and violet tonalities which inspire him to paint and project the natural scenaries at an international level.

 

His first impression of light was in the water and when seeing the Avila from the Guipuzcuana House in Macuto, he found himself with a set of lights in the shadows that he had never seen, amazed with the tropical polichromy, he´s motivated to move to Caracas.

 

He travels through our impressive natural sceneries, painting jungles, deserts, navy and colonial streets, exposing their voluptuosity.

 

Master Gayoso has painted of Venezuela, in the hyper characters technique, themes from the folklore and natural scenaries before mentioned, specializing in the Avila in all it´s manifestations, which has taken him to project himself at a national and international level as a venezuelan artist.

 

Apart from realizing himself as an artist, he has dedicated himself equally as a teacher, teaching techniques, styles, scenography, artistic photography, sculpture and graphic design, as well restauration, giving in this way his collaboration in the creation of new venezuelan values.

 

On the other hand, in the last thirty years he has made marmol, wood, paper, oil and religious themes restaurations.

 

He has actually dedicated himself more to oil painting and he feels constantly motivated by the venezuelan landscapes polichromy, lights and light in the shadows.
