Juan Gurewitsch

Juan Boris Gurewitsch was primarily inspired by the 1920s growing up. This period established the careers of many innovative and inspiring practitioners in the pictorial arts. However it was a period of reflection following the horrors of the First World War, and major shifts in politics took place across the world. Surrealism continued to mature in the 1920s and 1930s, and focused on the human unconscious and Freudian theory. He mainly painted landscapes with powerful brush strokes on the spot, taking into account the position of the sun, the shadows and the air. Later he abstracted pictures with condensed colors and shapes as well as connections to the cosmic.
