Environmentalism

Juan Antonio Guirado exudes a visionary feel with his paint strokes as he began to focus on environmental concerns and the consequences of climate change well before they occupied so many pages of our media. His relationship and understanding of the natural environmental plights were radical from his early landscapes. 

The sensibility of Juan Antonio Guirado is shown in full bloom through his works of the daily degradation of the natural environments of land, sea, and air and thereby denouncing man's not always praiseworthy actions. Overflowing rivers, dying forests, seas that are black from oil, polluted skies are all subjects covered over a 50-year career as an acclaimed international artist whose fears for the future of the planet were evident far before it was fashionable.

The 2017 'Environmentalism' exhibition with RoomMates Oscar Hotel in Madrid, curated by Laura Revuelta and Wanda von Breisky showed a collection of paintings selected to show man's communion with nature.

“The great experiment of consciousness” by Juan Antonio Guirado: 

Human evolution is now at a precipice created by itself  

This same awareness which fought for millions of years to ensure human survival 

Finds itself at the threshold of exhausting the planet's resources 

Of making its environment once again uninhabitable and of creating the instruments of its own destruction. 

Ultimately the serious need for material and abuses of human evolution 

Converge to create a situation which, in the long term, 

We are required to do nothing more than make changes. 

We are in a race between self-discovery and self-destruction 

The forces which may converge for our destruction are the same that can incite 

social and self discovery… 

“El gran experimento de la conciencia”, de Juan Antonio Guirado: 

La evolución humana se halla ahora ante un precipicio creado por si misma 

Esta misma conciencia 

Que lucho durante millones de a(n)os para asegurar la supervivencia humana  

Se halla actualmente al umbral de agotar los recursos de su planeta 

De volver inhabitable su entorno y de crear los instrumentos de su propia aniquilación. 

En definitiva la grave necesidad material y las prevalidas de la evolución humana  

Convergen para crear una situación en la que a largo plazo 

Estamos obligados a no hacer menos que realizar cambios 

Estamos en medio de una carrera entre el autodescubrimiento y la autodestrucción 

Las fuerzas que pueden converger para nuestra destrucción son las mismas que pueden fomentar  

El descubrimiento social y el propio
