  • Description


    Hello My name is Junior or you can call me INTI (artistic nickname) and I am a multidisciplinary artist. i am from Lobitos which is located in a friendly small fishing & surf town in the north of Peru.
    I live at Kapchay which is my atelier art studio, which is located just a few meters from the ocean, the only pier and main surf spots.
    Kapchay is a big old Angar which was built more than 100 years ago and now it is turning into a creative workshop and a gallery space, in which local people and foreigners can come, explore and discover their inner artistic talents. here I also offer free art workshop for local kids to help them develop their skills. in addition to that I foster language learning to the youngsters, so they can interact with tourists and have a bit more chances for meeting foreigners.
    so every day here there is something creative going on, drawings, paintings, or surfing, spending time cooking, chilling or just taking a walk on the beach and enjoying sunsets as the ocean is our front yard.
