Javier Niño was born in September 1950 in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico.
As a child, he began to draw and paint self-taught at the November 20 elementary school, without any teacher, only his imagination, using pencil, his notebook, and Chinese ink. Unaware of what was pictorial art and its history.
ys rested in the back of the classroom at the last desks, without paying attention to what his teachers taught, he only cared to imagine fantasies and to fill them with characters of magical colors that would become part of his unique style.
Twenty years later, in 1970, he decided to emigrate to Mexico City desirous to learn more about the art of painting. He entered the Academy of San Carlos (National School of Plastic Arts), where he learned the history of art, the great masters of classical, and contemporary painting.
