Santiago Lopez de Jesus is a true master painter and native of Puerto Rico who started his formal training in traditional art and illustration in 1960 at New York Institute of Technology after his military duty ended. He also took private classes from 1961 to 1965 with Greg Chapain, French master painter and with Rogelo Vilarchasso a Spanard master painter.
Painter of Taíno Indians
This is a real life artist yet a quiet and modest man born in Cayey, PR in 1941 and raised as a child and young adult in Santa Isabel.
Interviewed Santiago on December 8th, 2009 and since this interview, he has moved back to the US.
I consider myself privileged to have meet such a wonderful master artist.
Puerto Rican's bring a special touch to Earth, they are everywhere on this planet. Creative and resilient people that radiate an aurora
just like our polar lights (Northern Lights).
