About the Artist

Artist portrait

Jorge Villavicencio

Jorge Villavicencio (he/him) grew up in Washington State for the majority of his life and is a first generation American with familial roots in Oaxaca, Mexico. As a child, he would always be drawing or painting on any piece of paper that he could find (and sometimes not even on paper.) His parents recognized his love for all things creative and gave him the means to pursue it to his heart’s content. As he grew up, he was able to appreciate the creative process, and all the art from where his family originated, the beautiful state and region of Oaxaca. Nowadays, you’ll find him drawing cartoons or working on portraits as he travels around discovering all there is to see in this crazy world.

He draws his inspirations from his relationships with people and places that he’s had the privilege to get to know. You can find Jorge’s murals in San Diego and Everett, Washington. He creates wherever he goes and will continue to do so for as long as he can.
