José Morillo nace en Santo Domingo y su obra es de estilo naif. En 1998 la Asociación Dominicana de críticos de arte (ADCA) reconoció la revelación de su primera exposición individual, premiándole en consecuencia, y en ese mismo año obtuvo el primer premio en el concurso regional de pintura en México, primer premio en el concurso de pintura del ministerio de aviación civil de República Dominicana, y primer premio en el concurso de pintura de Casa de Teatro.
