Born in Yucatán on 24 July 1978, José Eric Calvillo has been suffering from multiple arthrogryposis since birth. The disease has resulted in total paralysis of his upper and lower extremities. He began to paint with his mouth at a very early age and later attended painting classes at public schools to improve his artistic skills. The mouth painter is very ambitious and wants to dedicate his whole life to painting.
