Juan was born in Colombia on the year 1995. He moved to Florida with his family when he was four, where he pursued an education in the Arts. He's now a student for Miami International University of Art & Design, pursuing a Bachelor’s in Visual Arts. As a child he has always shared a passion for drawing. He gained his inspiration from the works of artist such as James Jean, Walt Disney, Takashi Murakami, and Brian Donnelly. He considers his work as a visual representation of the constant harmony and battles shared between our life’s chaotic entities, and virtuous pillars. Using mixed media, he creates a world consisting of cartoon like illustrations, that embody a childlike imagination while representing the struggles and rewards that comes with age.
Living my life, through the eyes of my childhood.
