About The Teacher
Juan Carlos Taminchi is a young Peruvian artist who has inherited from the Andine and Amazonian cultures. At 8 years old the surrounding nature drew his attention and stimulated his drawing abilities, and thus opened the possibilities to artistic dreaming. In college he attended an artistic course that gave him a strong longing to study arts at the Pucallpa School of Arts where he became an Art Professor. Going in search of new artistic trends, he discovered the spirits world and sacred plants, which enabled him to deepen his approach to Visionary Art – sacred and spiritual art given by Mother Earth. He took part in several exhibits and attended several workshops with other visionary artists of his area. In October 2009, he made his first individual art exhibit that was named “Amazonies” in Paris, France.After, he acted on behalf of the association of Amazonian painters and sculptors named ONANYATI, which in Shipibo language means “Wisdom from ancestors”, he also attended the collective exhibit “Jamais trop d’art” in Tournai, Belgium. Today, Juan's work is part of various exhibitions such as "Third Eyes Gallery"-Boom Festival 2012 in Portugal, "Burning Man 2012", "Matices de las Americas" - U.S. and other exhibitions in Europe and South America.
