Juan Pablo Fernández Garcí is an international undergraduate student from Mexico, whose artistic passion and spiritual exploration have found a nurturing home at Naropa University. Currently pursuing a degree in Art Therapy, Juan’s creative journey has taken him to fascinating places, both externally and within. Here, he paints the captivating mural showcased in the Pamela Krasney Pavillion, a creation commissioned by the Little Lama Café, stands as a testament to Juan’s boundless artistic vision.
As he dives into the profound journey of self-exploration, Juan recognizes Naropa as a unique sanctuary that encourages individuals to embrace their true selves, without imposition, and to uncover the depths of their own identities. As Juan asserts, “And I think that from every University in the world, the only one that holds that space is Naropa, and it’s the only one that I have found in my life experiences.”
