JUAN COSSIO       (Madrid,1960)

Having exhibited a natural vocation early on in a life as an adept draughtsman and showing a keen visual sensibility for the pictorial and photography, Juan Cossío went on to study Fine Art at the Complutense University of Madrid. Actively involved in the explosive Spanish art scene of the Eighties, Cossío's tireless research and experimentation into pushing the boundaries of pictorial techniques led him to what is now more commonly known as 'New Realism'. Relying on photography as his main means of support and using the timeless airbrush as his preferred tool, Cossío's work continues to evolve through an openness to approach and his continual curiosity in employing whatever new techniques are at hand in order to achieve his unique contemporary aesthetic which look to the female figure as its main subject.

Habiendo mostrado una temprana vocación para el dibujo así como una gran sensibilidad para la
pintura y la fotografía,Juan Cossío realizó estudios de Bellas Artes en la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Activamente envuelto en el fértil panorama cultural que supuso la década de los 80 en España,
Cossío desarrolla una búsqueda incesante de experimentación que le lleva a los límites de las
técnicas pictóricas,introduciéndole en lo que que se ha venido llamando como "Nuevo Realismo".
Apoyándose en la fotografía como herramienta de registro de la realidad y en el aerógrafo como
 herramienta de trabajo más adecuada para sus fines.El trabajo de Cossío evoluciona en su
 contínua curiosidad en utilizar cualquier medio que le ayude a expresar su estética  
contemporánea que tiene cómo protagonista la figura femenina.
