Growing up, Javier de Aubeyzon’s creative outlet was skateboarding and surfing, both of which he continues today. It is through this love of the ocean, that he is able to establish a primal connection to nature. This has lead to a strong sense of responsibility or stewardship over his environment.
Javier is also a practicing architect and it is through studying the built environment that he becomes aware of the beauty and conflict inherent in urbanism when juxtaposed with nature.
In his series “Urban Industrial Landscapes.” He shows the marvel of civilization, such as a seaside industrial landscape containing a hydropower plant, an expression of man harnessing nature's power for his own benefit. Javier depicts technological advances as sinister, leading to many of his paintings to have a post-apocalyptic feel. He also often depicts the trash and detritus of society, consumption and obsolescence.
