Luis Aguilera


Born 1973, San Salvador, El Salvador

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 pallet 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. Aguilera was born in 1973 in San Salvador and has been attending Creative Growth since 1997; his work has been featured in exhibitions both nationally and internationally.
