Lutfi Janania (b. 1988 San Pedro Sula, Honduras)
, a Honduran botanical artist raised on a bioreserve among the rainforest and mountains in San Pedro Sula, has always coveted nature for her self-pronounced opulence. His sculptures, comprised of exquisite, distinguished dry and dehydrated natural materials, convey this sense of enrapture, and expand upon it. With poised geometric branches and weeping floral tendrils,Janania devises surreal, unrealized portraits of worlds we've yet to know.
He invokes romantic aesthetics of centuries past while cultivating ornate images within his cultural contexts. In doing so, Janania summons an elegant passion to his immediate realm. With each work, and each "new world," he emboldens once-faint ideas, reinforcing them with grace and gravitas at his studio in Brooklyn, New York.
