Surichaqui was born in Lima, Peru in 1963 and studied drawing and print making at the National School of Fine Art, Lima and watercolor at the Museum of Fine Art in Lima. He also studied medical technology at San Marcos University in order to gain a better understanding of the human form and anatomy. For a time, Surichaqui studied Design Publicity, but eventually he felt he needed to express himself through his art and began to attend artist workshops over the years to continually learn new techniques. Surichaqui has received several distinctions for his work, including a showing at the School of Dentistry in Lima and at the National Engineering University, also in Lima. He has exhibited around Peru in solo and collective shows since 2000.
