The artist known as Betirri was born in 1982 and grew up in the city of Puebla, Mexico. He moved with his family to the United States to Houston, Texas in the summer of 1997. He resides in Houston and enjoys the international capacity and flair the city has developed over the last 15 years. While he derives inspiration from several genres, Houston's diversity of culture and expansive global economy impact his art and style. After obtaining his Associate's Degree from Houston Community College in 2002, he studied abroad in Castiglion Florentino, Italy in the summer of 2005. This trip was very influential in the development of his artistic style and cultural perspective in architecture and included travel to Germany and Switzerland. He obtained his Bachelor of Architecture in 2007 from the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture. Satisfied with his training in Architecture, Betirri recognized the value of training a natural ability in art to add to his talent in design. He obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from The School of Fine Arts at the University of Houston in 2009. Following his formal education, Betirri has traveled and shared his art throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America. Read Less
