"My goal is to proclaim an insubordinate art... Art without borders, honest...."
Juan Carlos Ñañake was born on April 6, 1971. He studied at the Jose Sabogal School of Drawing in Chiclayo, the Ignacio Merino Art School in Piura and at the National Museum of Printing in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Ñañake's main inspiration is Peru's pre-Hispanic iconography, which for him means a constant search for his ancestral roots. "My goal is to proclaim an insubordinate art," exclaims Ñañake. "Art without borders, honest and moved by an extravagant force that runs through my veins. Maybe it's the force of our lineage clamoring for love, reintegration and respect for our millenary past."
Luis Ginocchio Feijó, noted Peruvian art critic, wrote of Ñañake, "This young artist's work is deeply rooted in our ancestral cultures. The colors he uses vivify a reality that makes us meditate. His paintings are characterized by their clarity, the harmonious use of color and vitality. The path Ñañake is on will surely take him amongst our most noted artists. Lets open our eyes and our hearts."
Ñañake has presented his work in collective as well as in individual exhibitions in Peru and abroad, including Ecuador and Argentina. Some of his paintings are featured in private collections in Peru, Chile, Argentina, England, Italy and Spain.
