Juan de la Rica (Bilbao, 1979) is a Spanish painter.
In 2007 he graduated in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country. Since then he has shown his work in numerous national and international exhibitions.
His painting is characterized by its flat, saturated colors and clean, synthetic lines. The themes he deals with are varied, including still life, portraiture, mythological and religious scenes, etc.
He generally approaches these issues with irony and humor, and with an eye always on Art History. In his paintings, he tries to offer an open narrative, where there is space for free interpretation.
