Noe Macedo N.
"I was born on June 15, 1975, in Pucallpa, situated to the right side of the Ucayali river. My parents are Noe Macedo Tananta and Emerita Nolorbe Pinedo, both with short economic resources.

"Pucallpa is a place rich in flora and fauna with a tropical weather; during the summer season, streets are very dusty but in the raining season the streets are very muddy. We have in the traditional folk evening shows in many houses with typical dances like in the carnivals and pandillas. People work in fishing, hunting, and timber.

"I am the third in my family, for me it was unable to go to the school because we moved to live in the chacra and my parents did not have money for my studies, but I learned to fish, to hunt, to grow bananas and harvesting the products from the crops. When I was 12 my family moved to live in Pucallpa again finishing my primary school in the 'Trebol' school; My father was going to work far from the rivers and sometimes when my father was coming he was fighting with my mother - I was suffering a lot. Then we moved to live in front of the Usko-Ayar Amazonian School of Painting where I met to don Pablo and I became a student of his school too. So I am learning to paint and I am happy because I am learning good and useful things in my life."
