About Juan Carlos Pinto:

Juan Carlos Pinto is an artist and art historian working in New York City. For the past 12 years, Juan Carlos has made Brooklyn his home . A native of Guatemala, his art is as expressive as the colorful and lush Central American nation. 

Pinto’s artwork is poignantly aggressive and projects a revolutionary declaration. The scope of his art covers abstract painting, tile work, wood work, stencil spray, the use of non-biodegradable plastic and glass. Most of Pinto’s media comes from salvaged material and found objects. Pinto’s use of plastic is unique and pulsates with hidden significance. 

Issues such as human and animal rights, environmental preservation, and empowerment of minorities are frequently incorporated into Pinto’s work. He is currently planning a series of murals and public art in Brooklyn, New York. Pinto’s art exudes confidence, energy and challenge. It draws one into a dual world of playfulness and social responsibility. His legacy, as he sees it, is to be known as an artist who demands change to a Green Revolution.
