ABOUT ME


Luis is a street photographer and multidisciplinary artist based in London. His work approaches the human and narratives of a humanistic character. His work has been featured, published and exhibited internationally, most notably at Art Basel Miami as a Miami Street Photography Finalist and featured in the British Journal of Photography.


As a cartoonist, Luis is making a return to the art after a long hiatus, of mainly personal work however he has had work recently exhibited at the Festival of Economy of Trento in 2018, under the theme "Technology and Jobs". Luis loves the natural and free expression of pencil and paper but has started to engage in digital techniques striving to strike a balance between the two mediums for greater expression.


Luis currently also explores code to create engaging, interactive art and physical objects, exploring play and mimicry.
