About Ernesto Apomayta Born and raised in Puno, Peru, Ernesto Apomayta was identified as an artistic prodigy at tender age of five. As a boy, Apomayta was first influenced and inspired by natural marvels surrounding humble home he shared with his family. In close proximity to shimmering Lake Titicaca, striking beauty of Andes and awe-inspiring Incan ruins of his ancestors, Apomayta was spiritually compelled to express his wonder visually through his paintbrush. A direct ancestor of legendary photographer, Martin Chambi, Apomayta derived inspiration from same native influences and his legacy that encouraged Apomayta to fulfill his own artistic destiny.
