Juan Valentín Muñoz
I am an artist with experience in handling various materials and artistic techniques, such as drawing, painting and photography I learned pursuing my studies at the University Jorge Tadeo Lozano in Bogota.
From a knowledge of drawing and artistic techniques, I focused on experimentation of different materials including (Pasto varnish-MOPA MOPA). In 2011 I resettled in San Juan de Pasto and started mastering the technique Mopa-Mopa working with my father Maestro Eduardo Muñoz Lora, with whom I subsequently exhibited.
This unique technique caught my eye early on with its magical texture, it has transcended the generation from father to son and has encouraged me as an artist by giving me a sense of belonging and forged the commitment that allows me to explore new designs and be able to promote the value of this ancient technique Mopa-Mopa, Barniz de Pasto which I am currently using to make exclusive pieces of art.
