This work was created using heavy paper stock in white, red and black. The Black was used as the background color, while I cut the red and white paper into all kinds of eccentric shapes with the addition of black and red markers. This composition has influences from the minimalist, hard edged, geometric and supremacist movements, Artist influences are Kandinsky, Arp, Miro, Ellsworth Kelly.

Juan Jose Hoyos Quiles was born in Brooklyn, New York and attended The School of Visual Arts, NYC from 1979 to 1982 where he studied under Elizabeth Murray, Keith Sonnier, Raphael Ferrer, Lucio Pozzi and Nachume Miller among others. Unfortunately art school does not teach you how to make money from fine art making. Therefore forced to make a living in the big city, Juan worked for several decades in business management for several large companies in law, accounting and telecommunications. Throughout this period Juan kept abreast of the art world by going to galleries and museums and making art in his spare time. Finally freed from money constraints in 2011 with early retirement, he is now dedicated to painting full time.
