Juan González Cervantes grew up with his grandparents as his mother died when he was three months old. After primary school he started working on the farm. When he was 17 years old his arms got caught in a corn mill and he lost them as a consequence. In spite of this stroke of fate he decided to attend high school, where he heard of the AMFPA for the first time. In 1999 he got interested in mouth painting and decided to have a try. Our full member Demetrio Herrera (mouth painter) supports him in his intention and gives him regular painting lessons.
