Juan Carlos Taminchi
Born July 7th 1985, Juan Carlos Taminchi is a young Peruvian artist who has inherited from the Andean 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 a drawing class that inspired him to study art at the Pucallpa School of Arts, where he then became an Art Professor.
From the age of 17, searching for his artistic style, he discovered the spirit world and sacred plants, which enabled him to deepen his approach to Visionary Art – a sacred and spiritual gift given by Mother Earth. He took part in several exhibits and attended several workshops with other visionary artists from his area.
In October 2009, he made his first individual art exhibit that was named “Amazonia” in Paris France. Later, he acted on behalf of an association of Amazonian painters and sculptors called ONANYATI, which means “Wisdom from Ancestors" in the Shipibo language in the collective exhibit “Jamais trop d’art” in Tournai, Belgium.
He also took part in various exhibitions such as "Third Eye Gallery"-Boom Festival 2012 in Portugal, "Burning Man 2012,” "Matices de las Americas", “Moksha Fair Art-2012”- Miami - U.S, “Chimera 2014”- Sedan- France, Symbiosis Festival 2015, California- U.S and many other exhibitions in Europe and the Americas.
Since 2012, he has dedicated his life to serving and sharing the sacred medicine of Amazon, and also leading shamanic art- therapy workshops in various spiritual events. He is often invited to do live painting in events and concerts all around the globe.
