"Hello, I'm Jorge Luis López Madero, although as an artist I use only my maternal surname. I was born in Acapulco, close to the sea amid tropical landscapes. Ever since I was a boy, I've liked to draw and my family always encouraged me to do so. I participated in my first art contests while in grade school, winning third place in the state.
