A Daily Dose Of Sublime

On his Tumblr he calls his illustrations “A paradoxical distillation of the word and the image as directed by the filters of randomness”

Juan Doe is an endangered painter. The last of a dying breed, he personifies pure art. With unheralded hand skills and hellacious wit, Juan Doe redefines the parameters of bizarre genius and secular thug. Born and raised in New York City, Juan Doe has been evolving the language of interdisciplinary art and design since the late 1970’s.  He is an artist who strains the boundary between painting, propaganda, polemics, and philosophical discourse in art. He encapsulated a new age aesthetic through his command of the graphic process but with the masterful execution of a painter. His images are non-negotiable, they cannot be interpreted or postponed; they exist now, for the oxygen of the viewers eyes.  His works stand as testament to this artist’s brash and unwavering attempts to demand attention through an acrylic vehicle of contradiction – a showcase of the beauty and horror in contemporary art. Doe will not allow the viewer to arrive in the future with out the past. His work characterizes a fusion of form, a behavior, dictating dignity and morality through a visual medium synonymous with contemporary culture

A reipient in 2007 of an individual grant in visual arts from the Bronx Council of the Arts, he is repersented in the Bronx Museum (New York).
