1985, b. in Campinas/Brazil. Lives and works in Belo Horizonte/Brazil. His main subject of interest is space and its ways of production. In investigating this process, Luis considers art as an institutionalized platform to confront scientific thinking – especially geography, anthropology, architecture and urbanism. Despite working with a wide range of media, he is first and foremost in an ongoing research on drawing. He considers the medium of drawing, with its particular action strategies and forms of achieving knowledge, as a powerful tool to turn visible the relation between body, space and landscape.
