Francisco was born in 1965, the youngest son in the first marriage of Mestre Graciano. Francisco developed an early interest in making things by hand and when he was about 16 years old, he began making small wood sculptures. He is known today for his animated animals and human figures from daily life, often painted in decorative patterns with bold colors and high gloss paints.
