John Zamudio is a Peruvian painter, having been born in Lima Peru, and having spent his childhood years in the district of San Luis. He has four other siblings, and is the second oldest of the five. He took a keen interest in drawing at a very early age as sort of a refuge from being left alone to play because other children incessantly teased him because of his hands which were permanently scarred from an accident that he suffered at home at the young age of two. In time he was able to hone his new found talent and became quite proficient. It was his amazing drawings that became the bridge to acceptance by the other children.
John Zamudio Mormon Artist John was accepted at the age of 17 at the National School of Fine Arts in Lima, Peru. It was there that he was able to learn a wide variety of "artistic techniques and mediums. [1] In 1991, he began studying oil painting at the Art Museum of Quinta Vergara in Vina del Mar.
Though he had a promising career ahead of him in becoming an artist, John, like so many others on their track to success in life, soon became enticed by the success that the world seemingly had to offer him. He gave up his noble ambitions of becoming an artist to pursue a career in Business Administration, a career path which he followed for 15 years. However, at the end of the road, John found that his new sought after career did not afford him the "stillness and peace of mind he had once found in painting and felt a distinct void in his life. [1]
However, in 2002, John reached a turning point in his life. He lost everything, and was emotionally broken for four years. He suffered from depression and felt completely disillusioned. He felt he had nothing to show for so many years of hard work.
One day, in the midst of his deep depression, he stumbled across a box of his old art supplies and was inspired to return to painting without fear of failure. He decided to fight for his dreams. [1]
