Juan Araujo (born 1971 in Caracas, Venezuela; lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal).


Oil on canvas, 40 × 30 cm


“Since moving to Portugal from Venezuela, Araujo has become fascinated with the genesis of modern and postmodern architecture in Europe and how these ideals later travelled across the Atlantic to influence the development of twentieth century Latin American architecture. Examples include Oscar Niemeyer’s Casa das Canoas (1953) in Rio de Janeiro; Lina Bo Bardis’ Casa de Vidro (1951) in Sao Paulo and the Luis Barragán house (1948) in Mexico City.” – Stephen Friedman Gallery
