Kiko Argüello - a painter of icons (student of Picasso)who became a founder of Neokatechumenat.

After a profound existential crisis, he embarked on a serious conversion that made him dedicate his life to Jesus and to the Church.
Convinced that Christ is present in the suffering of the poorest of people, Argüello took his guitar and Bible and left to live in the slums of Madrid, following the path of Charles de Foucauld. He abandoned his studies and painting as a career, to go and live amongst the poor, building for himself a wooden shack in Palomeras Altas, on the outskirts of Madrid.
