Victor Fuentes was born in Nicaragua, a tropical country in Central America. He lived part of his childhood in the countryside where he was in daily contact with nature and where he began to develop a love for the flora and fauna surrounding him. The colorful wild flowers, the small town customs, the churches and the architecture are all elements that influenced his painting style. Earthly colors, yellow and orange hues combined, become a reflection of the intense hot tones that characterize the clay from the countryside. He moved to Seattle in 2001.
