Furthermore, Juan’s father in-law, Francisco Prósper, was one of the most important international film set designers with more than 400 movies under his belt, including “Lawrence of Arabia”, “Doctor Zhivago” and “The Fall of the Roman Empire”.

Starting his studies in Madrid, he attended the Universidad Complutense de Madrid where he received his BA in Visual Arts. He complemented his studies with Technique for Multimedia Applications and an MA of Humanities, both at Universidad Francisco de Victoria.
