JOSE DOMINGO SALINAS HUERTA
Santiago de Chile, May 9th 1959
I was Born in Santiago, Chile in 1959. My life as artist began later in life despite of the fact I have been drawing most of my life, I am an engineer by trade, and the creativity side of art have been always an advantage I have used in my work. Now I have got two Fine Arts Diplomas from the University and now I am in the never-ending process of growing as an artist.
My art is the resut of a life-long process of being a Soldier, an airplane Pilot, an Engineer, a United Nations Disarmement Officer, and a curious Citizen of Earth.
