The same year he appeared for the exhibition of the "Othon Friesz" award.
Paris represented for Juan Carlos an ideological birth, the place where he was trained as an artist and as a person, combining his own with what he learned. In 1955 Marcos was invited to participate in a collective of Latin American art, the I Young American Painting Salon, organized by the University of Oviedo.
