José Antonio Gualito Reséndiz was born on 7 September 1979 in Mexico City with cerebral paralysis, which resulted in him having to spend long periods in hospital. At the age of 14 he discovered that he was able to use his mouth to write. So this was what motivated him to make pencil drawings on paper napkins. At the age of 20 he began to paint in oils on wood. His faith and his willpower are very great, making him channel all his ambition into painting.
