Juan Tiscareno was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico and moved to Los Angeles at age 18. He started drawing at age 12 and for the next three decades continued to develop his talents as a self-taught artist.
After being paid $250 for his first mural in Los Angeles, Juan took the money and moved to Indiana in 1996 to be near family and to get away from the growing influence of gang activity.
Since moving to Indiana Juan has continued to paint and draw mostly for his own personal collection. In
Juan Tiscareno is a self-taught artist who gets his inspiration from cracks in the floor, stains on concrete, scratches in paint, odd grains of wood. With just a glance at these shapes overlooked by most, Juan receives images of characters in full color and proceeds to bring them to life.
Juan‘s art is saturated with the images of ancient Mexica and Aztec inspired warriors as well as the colors of contemporary traditions such as the Feria de San Marcos, which takes place every year in full view from the windows of his childhood home in Aguascalientes, Mexico. Juan also spent many afternoons in the nearby Museo de Jose Guadalupe Posada, creator of the catrina and celebrated inspiration of modern Dia de los Muertos traditions.
Canvas work from $30 – $3000.
Pricing for murals dependent upon the space and concept for the design.
