Raul Pizarro was born in Mexicali, Mexico. He is a self taught-artist who works primarily in oil paints. Living with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, he is forced to constantly shift and reinvent his painting technique with each new physical challenge presented at the varies stages of muscle loss. He lives and works on the fringe of Los Angeles.
“I paint every day, knowing that every ounce of strength I put into applying each brush stroke is the measure of life. My muscles aren’t vanishing, they are transforming into permanent echoes on canvas.” Raul Pizarro
