In the long-spanning career of the iconic modern Juvenal Sanso, we have seen countless renditions of the artist’s sought after landscapes. Usually done in acrylic, these well-recognized works possess a distinct allure that is Sanso — considered by many as ‘poetic Surrealism‘, a term coined for the genre forged by the artist’s predilections.
Sanso has remained faithful to this vision of reality, or surreality, prompting critic Eric Torres to write: Brooding images of desolation and fine traditional draftsmanship have remained rock steady elements in Sanso’s paintings proving in the process that artists need not to change style if there is no intrinsic need to.
