Juan Jose Hoyos Quiles was born in Brooklyn, New York and attended The School of Visual Arts, NYC from 1979 to 1982 where he studied under Elizabeth Murray, Keith Sonnier, Raphael Ferrer, Lucio Pozzi and Nachume Miller among others. Unfortunately art school does not teach you how to make money from fine art making. Therefore forced to make a living in the big city, Juan worked for several decades in business management for several large companies in law, accounting and telecommunications. Throughout this period Juan kept abreast of the art world by going to galleries and museums and making art in his spare time. Finally freed from money constraints in 2011 with early retirement, he is now dedicated to painting full time.
