Johnny Quintana was born on April 6, 1979 in San Bernandino, California. His family then moved to Guanajuato, Mexico, where he lived for the first ten years of his life. Johnny was exposed to the beauty of the land, the people, the language and dialects and the amazing landscapes of Mexico. The setting of his childhood was surrounded by the richness and purity of the culture which brings about a lot of influence in his early works.

    Most of Johnny's early works and drawings reflect the colorful and diverse Mexican culture: The people, their homes, market places, fields, churches, and towns. Drawing and painting were constant companions throughout his school years. Art became his constant outlet for expression. Johnny wanted to exhibit his own personal interpretations of what this land offered his eyes.

    For most of his life, he has concentrated on art and as he gained experience he began to develop further interest for design. Johnny eventually moved back to California, where he studied and graduated from the Visual Arts and Design Academy at Pasadena High School in 1997. While attending the Academy he further developed his skills in figure drawing, illustration, rendering, computer graphics, fine arts, medical illustration, and sculpture. Many opportunities emerged from his natural talent and the experience he gained. During his senior year, he was a graphic design curator for an art exhibit called "Careers in Art" and in 1996, he was accepted to the California State Summer School for the Arts at "Cal Arts" in Valencia.

    Following high school, Johnny continued to develop and experiment with his skills and decided to take a crucial step in his career, he applied to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and was accepted.

    His classes there were an intense time of great learning and growth. He graduated in 2005 fulfilling a Bachelor in Fine Art in the field of Illustration. Johnny’s overall life experience, technical training, natural ability and experimentation allow him to be an artist with vast skills. His personality and knowledge allows him to adapt to anything a project may ask of him.

    Eventually Johnny would like to teach so he can pass on his skills to up and coming artists. Presently, Johnny is a working artist who lives to express himself in true form, presenting his unlimited vision to the world.
