Juan Garcia, also known by his artist name Nativo, was born in San Antonio de Ibarra, a small town in the Andes of Ecuador. He studied at the School of Arts “Daniel Reyes”, one of the oldest schools of arts in South America. He is well known for making the pre-Colombian motifs prominent in his art. These motifs tell the story about the forces of nature, animals, as well as human relation to the universe. His inspiration comes from deep connection to his roots and Ecuadorian history.
