As a very young artist, of only 25 years old, Jose Huallpa was doing so well that he reversed the normal trend, at least in South America, of being an artist to being an art teacher. He graduated from the School of Arts as an Art Professor and had the opportunity to teach at the well known school Maria Parado de Bellido. The difference in what he could make as a teacher and what his paintings were selling for, while most of his art colleagues were starving to death, was so big, that he could not afford to continue to teach. In the 4 years after he finished school, he held dozens of exhibitions that included very prestigious galleries like Galeria Los Olivos, the Municipality of Lince, Galeria Chagall, Galeria el Tuneluni and Club La Union. Additionally, he has received several distinctions including a First Prize at the Contest Juan Villacorta
