St. Maarten artist Jimmy Lucero was born in Santa Barbara, California. In college, Jimmy was heavily influenced by Manuel Unzueta who encouraged his interest in Mexican Muralists. Jimmy taught mural painting at La Casa De La Raza, a center for Hispanic youths. He had no idea that thirty years later, he would be painting murals with kids on St. Maarten. During those thirty years, Jimmy earned a B.S. in Biology, worked at UC Davis and Stanford University, got married and had two children. He obtained his B.F.A. degree in 2001 at the University of Utah. Upon completion of his M.F.A. in 2003, Jimmy was awarded a scholarship for most outstanding graduate work and has been a professional artist ever since. Jimmy has been painting in St. Maarten for 3 years. Since moving to St. Maarten, Jimmy has begun a series of paintings depicting the immigrant workers on the island. “I choose to give voice to the people who have none and to help people see those who invisibly work among us.”
