BIOGRAPHY

Luis Felipe grew up in a family of illustrators and draftsmen in Mexico City.

Luis Felipe grew up in a family of illustrators and draftsmen in Mexico City, where inks, papers, pens and brushes, as well as books and dialogues on art history, were daily; as well as friendships with intellectuals, especially painters, who frequented his parents’ house. That world marked him definitively, and from an early age, he made the decision to dedicate himself to painting as a way of life.

Luis Felipe has devoted most of his time to perfecting his craft: always drawing, painting and walking mountains. The Wixrrárika (Huicholes) directly influenced his early paintings, their color and aesthetic concepts, and their insatiable thirst for shapes, textures and colors have led him to travel throughout The earth. He has fed on classical culture and primitive worlds, and their habitats: from his life in the Sierra Madre, in Mexico, in the Swiss-Italian Alps and in the Himalayas, as well as his walk on the island of Sol in the Titicaca lake and admire the Sacred Valley of Peru, until you know the distant and wonderful Burmese. Thanks to that traveling painter’s jogging and his sensitive eye, all these cultures have made an intaglio in his work.
