About Juan Bautista


Juan Bautista Nieto was born in Lora el Rio, Spain. He studied at the Fine Arts Faculty of Seville. Prior to that he studied medicine, to which he attributes his understanding and appreciation of human anatomy.

His often large-format paintings exaggerate reality and reach beyond photographic representation. Nieto combines oil and acrylic paint with air brush techniques, resulting in delicate and continuous layers of shades and manifold notes of light, shadow and density.

The every facet of his subject is depicted with a minute detail, hence Nieto produces relatively few paintings each year. Large paintings take between six to nine months to complete, he says.

Bravo!

Just like non-objective imagery, hyper-realism is hard to pull off without seeming trite or irrelevant. Brother Nieto executes very well.

truly wonderful art.

so classic... showing the beauty in the human body!!
