Arturo has always been interested in art and begun taking art classes after school at a very young age. By the time he was in High school, he represented the state of new Mexico in various art competitions held throughout the USA. Shortly after he left high school he concentrated his time and efforts to spraypainting. He was often told that spraypainting was limited to creating space sceneries and even though the complexities of an infinite space are endless he felt they seemed quite limited.
It took Arturo several years of infusing the techniques he had learned in other medias with the new media he had discovered to create this unique style of painting. Thanks to his techniques spraypainting, has evolved and artists are now able to compete with the know medias.
