Paco Marcial studied painting at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and passed through the Jan van Eyck Akademie in Maastricht, Netherlands. Paco won the National Painting Award through his work with Taller Documantación Visual collective.

Paco later moved to Japan where he worked for curator F. Nanjo. It was in Japan that he met the artist Jason Rhoades and began a friendship that led him to coordinate his studio in Los Angeles. After traveling the world he finally realized that he was a Sculptor.
