Ernesto studied art at an early age in his native Peru with personal tutor, Raul Alvarez. He won several awards in various competitions during his school years. However, on leaving school, despite his precocious talent he put aside his plans to study fine art and embarked on studies in theology and anthropology. In 1987 due to the rising political unrest, Ernesto left his country and made his permanent home in UK. In the early 90’s Ernesto began painting again. Since then he has built a substantial body of work, finding a distinctive style which reveals both the richness of his native culture and the influence of western tradition. His paintings have been exhibited in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, and are held in private and public collections here and abroad.
