Fine Art Photography
Juan Contreras is a fine art photographer and oil painter based in Vancouver BC. Juan was educated as an Electrical and Systems Engineer and currently works as an IT Professional in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. In late 2008, he made a decision to pursue his passion for the fine art world and started formal studies at Emily Carr University and extended his art vision attending the photography program at the Langara College. Although an artist at heart, Juan divides and extends his time between art and technology.
Juan included photography as a new medium for his artistic vocabulary to produce thoughtful, provocative and ambitious high-quality images embracing everyday scenes, street photography, cityscape, and artistic narrative of onsite live performance dance. As an artistic photographer, Juan lives to pursue THE image that satisfies his passion for visually communicating emotions, stories, and photographic processes. The world is full of endless, diverse, and intriguing frames and scenes asking to be captured. Juan embodies them in three paths of my artistic vision: Motion Trail, Conceptual Art, and Shapes & Forms - abstract Images, found in urban contexts and nature all around; see his journey visiting www.jucoVisualArts.
Juan is a member of CAPIC, the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver, Vancouver Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery, Federation of Canadian Artists, and Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens.
