Juan Carlos Taminchi is a young Peruvian artist and descendant of the Andean and Amazonian cultures. He was born on July 7, 1985. At eight 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 then became an Art Professor.
From the age of 17, in search of his artistic trend, he discovered the spirit world and sacred plants, which enabled him to deepen his approach to Visionary Art – a sacred and spiritual art given by mother earth. He took part in several exhibits and attended several workshops with other visionary artists in his area. In October 2009, he made his first individual art exhibit that was named “Amazonies” in Paris. After, he acted on behalf of an association of Amazonian painters and sculptors named ONANYATI, which means in Shipibo language “Wisdom from ancestors” and he attended the collective exhibit “Jamais trop d’art” in Tournai, Belgium. He also took part in various exhibitions such as “Third Eyes Gallery”-Boom Festival 2012 in Portugal, “Burning Man 2012”, “Matices de las Americas”, “Moksha Fair Art-2012”- Miami – U.S, “Chimeria 2014”- Sedan, France, and many other exhibitions in Europe and Americas.
Since 2012, he has dedicated himself to serve and share the sacred medicine of Amazonia, lead shamanic art-therapy workshops and collaborate in the growth of AYAM Creation, an eco-conscious clothing brand working with various indigenous tribes in Peru. He is also often invited to do live painting at events and concerts all around the globe.
