Augustin Rojas was born in Lima, Peru in 1965. Rojas studied at the Escuela de Artes de Lima, where he graduated in 1992 with top honors. He also studied art in the ateliers of well known painters Jose Aldana and Miguel Niere.
Rojas paintings are powerful works of art. His studies of the nude figure exhibit his strength in drawing and a profound knowledge of anatomy. Rojas integrates line, form and color in his paintings and the results are forceful pieces. This artist has devoted his energy to the rediscovery of the nude figure. He considers his "neo-figurativisism" as a reflection of the most beautiful shapes and forms created by God.
