Self-taught artist, muralist, painter, Originally from Guatemala, but lives in California in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1990. Where we worked as the Regional Artist for Whole Foods Market Northern California & Reno region (now owned by Amazon) for over ten years.

 

He attended a local community college for multimedia but always had art as a hobby growing up, a hobby that how became his 24/7, it wasn't until 2009 that He actually got introduce to Madonnari art form, and fell in love with the art, and the artist part of this group. ‘We are all one large international family’ He says, ‘and we look after each other, support and learn from each other all the time’.

 

 He started participating in street painting festivals in the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts Festival, in 2009, and in 2015 He finally spread his wings and was able to participate in Santa Barbara I-Mandonnari, Marin- Italian Street Painting Festival in California and He was also part of the team to attempting to break a world record in Sarasota, Florida working a long side with Kurt Wenner, and 30 other internationally known artist.

 

He has always been about the idea that it’s not the quantity of festivals you do a year, but the quality of work you do at the festival you do, do.

 

You can see samples of his work in his portfolio page.
