Juan Alfredo Amil Serantes, (A Coruña 1954) is a prominent businessman, painter and collagista born in Galicia and established in Tenerife since 1972.
He is a self-taught artist who from the very begining focused all his attention on Impressionism. He has been painting for more than 20 years but it is not until more recently when Xan Serantes stands out in the art world, finding his own voice in the Collage, the technique he feels most identified with.
"I start from a central point, and from there I try to find harmony in color. My ultimate idea is to transmit people certain feelings that I experience when I am composing the collage. I always think about what I am feeling or how I feel when making my collages. I do what I do because I like it and I do it mainly for myself. But if someone wants to see things from my point of view I will always be very grateful. The collage can transmit infinity of emotions in one single piece. "
