Luis Masana Arenas

I my artistic journey at just 10 years old, taking classical drawing classes and painting lessons. While I went on to have a career in business, I have painted my whole life in an amateur way. I decided to dedicate myself professionally and full time to painting about 14 years ago. My father painted all his life and he and the teachers of the time of "the rupture" who were his friends and frequented my house and his study was undoubtedly my greatest influence.

At the beginning of my professional career in art, I experimented with a photo-painting technique, which gradually disappeared as I discovered oil painting, acrylic mixed media painting and sculpture. 

Photography and literature have always remained great hobbies of mine, and continue to lend influence to my work. Many of my works come from photos that I take. Likewise, literature on social and cultural issues of Mexico and Latin America are always present in my works, in some pieces more obviously than others. My art has always been figurative expressionism and the evolution is towards simplicity and prioritizing color. 

My palette has influences from modern European art, given that part of my family were of Catalan origin. My first contacts with art and museums were at an early age in the city of Barcelona. I have had found many European art influences, most significantly in German expressionism and Spanish modernism.
