Luis Medina

Santander, Spain, 1955

Luis Medina believes in a continuous evolution of the work, which is naturally caused by the fact that he lets himself be carried away by his own discoveries and sensations when he creates it. Influenced by his studies in industrial engineering, his works present the urban reality, with buildings and a geometric pattern.

Luis Medina is able to express himself through color, creating a minimalist perspective. He uses acrylics on canvas or paper. Find a balance in the composition; sometimes they are geometric and others are closer to abstraction.
