About the teacher: 

I am Carlos Gualo, I was born in Chibuleo-Ecuador and I am widely creative and I have an enterprising spirit. I started my career at a young age painting with my fingers. I followed my studies in painting at Colegio de Bellas Artes in Ecuador, where I was the only indigenous person wearing a poncho.

I didn’t know how to speak Spanish that well, and I felt like an outsider and discriminated at times due to my looks and roots, but I was lucky to have opportunities to reach Spain and London and grew the knowledge of techniques. I use vibrant and strong colours to represent my culture. I came from an indigenous background, and through my art I want to represent my indigenous culture.

Carlos has also published a book about his unique painting techniques and is available to purchase online:
