Armando was born in Mexico, and now lives in Tubac, Arizona~a quaint little town south of Tucson near the Mexico border. It's a historic destination for the arts with world class art galleries and amazing shops featuring the decor of Southern Arizona. With all of that creative energy buzzing there, it's the perfect home for his art studio where he spends a lot of his time painting~primarily with oil paints. His inspiration comes from his days as a bullfighter, as well as the amazing landscapes in the Southwest. For Armando, his paintings represent his life. He says his life would be nothing without painting."
