Juan Antonio Guirado’s first exhibition took place in 1956 in Miami and he immediately experienced success. As a result, he would travel the entire world with his art. He sought new and seductive paths to explore which lead to his Intrarealist work. When asked to describe intrarealist painting, Guirado replied: “it is the type of painting that one has to see with the third eye, the eye of the mind.”
A mix of Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism, Guirado’s work challenges the viewer to open their mind and eyes, to look within, and evaluate the reality of their surroundings.
