Juan Carlos Osorno.


"I like to think of myself as a drawing artist. Every day I find in drawing a universe full of possibilities. That is the reason why all my projects and ideas always start on paper. As an artist, I often try to experiment with different media, but drawing is always the fundamental basis for developing my thoughts and understanding the world."
