Born on 5 March 1976 in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico). Mr Montañez became a tetraplegic after a car accident. It was only through several complicated operations that the doctors were able to save his life. His positive outlook on life enabled Mr Montañez to live with his condition. Through his grandmother he met artist Sunny Bernard who is a student member of the Association, and who offered to teach him so that he could become familiar with and learn the technique of mouth painting.
