Luis Aguilera (Alum)

Born 1973, San Salvador, El Salvador
Practiced at Creative Growth from 1997-2014

Luis Aguilera’s vibrant drawings of figures and animals are multi-layered, personal narratives that include icons of popular culture, buses and trains, fantasy creatures, musical instruments, and portraits of his friends from the Creative Growth studio. His saturated color palette and dramatic representations of figures and objects demonstrate a consistent vision complemented by his fusion of line, form, and color that energize and often abstract his imagery. Luis’s work has been featured in exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
