Juan Francisco Casas is one of the most influential young Spanish painters of today. He work includes large oil on canvas paintings and blue ballpen drawings where he reproduces images he takes with his camera. It would take a casual observer a close second look to discern that what he’s looking at is actually a painting and not a photograph. Not content with being good at just painting, Juan also writes and has published a lot of books including one about poetry entitled “Thesummerhaikus“.
