Juan Esteban

Visual Artist. Co-founder & Artlang at Kripties Art Gallery



His extensive experience in the world of artistic languages allows us to discover in Juan Esteban’s work a fascinating artistic polyglot in which his professional career in communication and digital marketing also merges.

The extreme sensitivity in some of his proposals that now take on a fascinating reading in his transition to the digitally plastic brings a new dimension enriching languages that drink from orientalism, Japonism in the most plastic and calligraphic sense at the same time; culture reference in it, it is also observed here a significant weight from the conceptual even in the figurative, being a mere pretext for reflection and a starting point to connect with traditional Japanese art that prioritizes the suggestion of aesthetics rather than the obvious. It highlights the link that unites man with his context, reflected in an identical proportion of harmony and beauty.

Co-founder and Artlang at Kripties® Art Gallery

I am a painter, although I have been working in Internet communication since 1997 as a specialist in branding and digital storytelling. Currently I am especially dedicated to the management of artistic languages in Kripties, the first NFT digital art gallery in Spain.

I consider myself a restless person: technophile, early-adopter and betatester, I graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Seville and took the ‘Strategic Management of Brand and Communication’ program at ESADE. At the same time that I was studying at university I started working for several ISPs as a designer, layout designer and web programmer. This led me, at the height of the Internet boom, to the world of interactive advertising, working in an agency and, later, joining Ingenia where I participated in large IT projects as creative director, in addition to directing its Communication and Marketing department.

After my time at Ingenia I started my experience as a trainer in private schools, while I started and created in partnership the digital agency Mute and, recently, the digital art gallery Kripties.

Socio fundador y Artlang en Kripties® Art Gallery

Soy pintor, si bien trabajo la comunicación en Internet desde 1997 como especialista en marca y narrativa digital. Actualmente estoy especialmente dedicado a la dirección de lenguajes artísticos en Kripties, la primera galería de arte digital NFT de España.

Me considero una persona con inquieta: tecnófilo, early-adopter y betatester, me licencié en Bellas Artes por la Universidad de Sevilla y cursé el programa ‘Dirección estratégica de la Marca y la Comunicación’ de ESADE. A la vez que cursaba mis estudios universitarios me inicié en diversos ISPs como diseñador, maquetador y programador web. Esto me llevó, en pleno boom de Internet, al mundo de la publicidad interactiva, trabajando en agencia y, después, incorporándome a Ingenia donde he participado en grandes proyectos TI como director creativo, además de dirigir su departamento de Comunicación y Marketing.

Tras mi etapa en Ingenia inicié mi experiencia como formador en escuelas privadas, a la vez que emprendía y creaba en sociedad la agencia digital Mute y, recientemente, la galería de arte digital Kripties.
