Juanito Conte

 Juanito Conte, a Finalist of the "Show Your World" International Art Competition.

Juanito Conte, a fine artist from Uruguay, can be characterized as unpredictable in materializing his ideas into paintings.

Juanito's creative process starts with a gesture, a sketch, a brushstroke.What we can see in Juanito's artwork is the final trail of the intent to learn something special from what he viewed in those first lines and scratches which later become organized in a coherent and functional way around a dramatic structure.

As famous Nicolas Bourriaud said, "Artistic activity is a game, which forms, patterns and functions develop and evolve according to periods and social contexts". Juanito Conte's artwork illustrate this concept brilliantly. His painting appears as a result of his dialogue and invention of the relationship between the subjects. The vibrations, dramaturgy and rhythm that are seen in his works are rooted in Juanito Conte's motherland, Uruguay. 

The powerful energy, the movement, the color, the speed and the force are visibly present in Juanito's art.
