About the artists:
Born October 18th, 1976 in Arequipa, Peru
The unrest he felt expressing himself through painting, led him to study at the “Carlos Baca Flor” College of Art.
With great concern for Peru's social aspects, he sometimes explores the realistic language with touches of expressionism, and at times with surrealism, finding watercolors as a means of expression.
His abstract language seeks the countryside as his workspace; here he feels at ease to externalize his internal unrest expressing it in colors and lines.
Born in Arequipa, Peru in 1967. Since he was very young he showed a fondness for color and the intense desire to explore it; this is the reason his mathematics teacher encouraged him to study pictorial art, which he did, after concluding his secondary studies in the traditional school Independencia Americana, going against his parents' wishes.
Once he finished his studies at the Baca Flor School of Fine Arts (1987 – 1991) he went on to Colombia to show his skills in watercolors and then continued his wanderings across the world, painting, and learning.
After a period of pure academism, he developed a conceptual and intimate language, a technique and a manner of expression that goes on to become but only one phase of his constant exploration.
