Born in Mexico City, residing between Guanajuato MX and California USA. Ivan started painting since he was 8 years old, but after studying advertising design he stopped practicing some of the arts. However, after an invitation to the 2015 Madonnari festival, his passion was reignited. He has now been able to travel through many different cities in Mexico and the United States, sharing his art with the people. He enjoys interacting with people and help make a moment of happiness when they see the art he is creating. He also loves to see how children get so excited about chalk art. Art for Ivan is a way of expression that brings people of the world closer to each other.
