Juan Petry

Juan Petry

Germany • Born in: 1959


German artists

Juan Petry was born in Cologne, grew up in the cathedral ity and very often in Sant Pol de Mar, a fishing village near Barcelona, the home of his family.
Already in his school days he developed his creativity, was co-editor of a literary newspaper, took part in film and theater productions and made his first social sculptures at the age of 20. After that there were many stations: social worker, teacher, lecturer, programmer, management consultant. The focus was always on people.
Petry is somewhere between Beuys and Warhol; as a concept artist for social sculpture, he favors the participatory approach in art. His passion is to create unique pieces in small series through the choice of means and processes. Often he builds the social space for the creative performance of others. He draws the philosophical arc from Plato to Popper. His work manifests itself in foundations, EL-DRAC as a network of European artists, CASAdelDRAGON as a think tank and artist residence, Artsurprise, MUARCO, all of which are stages built to celebrate something: the human.
Petry works in Europe.
