Jorge Artus Valenzuela was born on 7 December 1966 without arms. After visiting primary school and the "San Ignacio" College, he completed a school for communication techniques. As Valenzuela had already been interested in painting when he was very young and had therefore looked also into mouth painting, he went to a painting course of the University of Santiago in 1992.
