A Mexican artist Luis Masana has been a working painter, sculptor and photographer in Mexico City for the past 15 years. Over the years, his work has shifted away from photography to focus exclusively on oil and mixed media painting and sculpture. He employs figurative expressionism and the simplicity prioritizing color to create socially conscious works that focus on social and cultural issues of Mexico and Latin America. His palette has influences from modern European art, which he learned through the Catalonian side of his family.
He draws influence from German expressionism and Spanish modernism, and his palate is specifically drawn from the European modernists. Masana has exhibited his Urban Surrealist paintings and plastic sculpture works in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Mexico and the United States.
