Luis Fuentes is a peruvian artist, born in 1969 into a family of artists. After finishing high school, Luis entered university to pursue a degree in architecture and fine arts, but he realized that painting was his true vocation, so he dedicated his efforts to complete his fine art training.
In 1990, while he still was a student, he won the first place in the Peruvian National Watercolor Competition. This prestigious event earned Luis recognition and the opportunity to show his work in galleries in his country. Today, Luis shows his work worldwide.
One of the most important elements of his artwork is the contrast between light and shadow. Each painting features rich shadows and bright highlights, that gives his work a glowing illusion of reality.
