Juan was raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Being a dual citizen of Argentina, and briefly living in America at a young age he was exposed to many different art cultures. He is a printmaker, a painter, an abstract artist but mainly an animator. Since he was little there has always been an interest in what goes into the cartoons he loves. How the backgrounds are made and the characters are developed. Seeing a story come to life, was something he always wanted to create. As he grew older his love for cartoons never wavered. He became more and more interested in the development of adult cartoons and this launched his studies into 2D and stop motion animation. As he is continuing in create his own work and learn the ins and outs of the industry his passion for the art grows stronger. Juan will graduate from Savannah College of Art and Design in Spring 2020 with a B.F.A in animation focusing on 2D and stop motion.
