Luis Selem


Born in Mexico City in 1980, he lives most of his life in Sinaloa, a state that saw him born as a plastic artist more than 20 years ago, the same time he has dedicated to painting. He has a degree in Architecture from the Lasalle University Campus in Cuernavaca, Mexico. He studied a Bachelor of Visual Arts specializing in fine arts at the Autonomous University of Querétaro, Mexico and received his Master's degree in Art from The Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy."Painting is my language, my way of life and my passion, that's how it has been since we discovered each other. My work is based on experiences lived in childhood, connect with that scared and fearful child for his first move, fearful and scared not by the change, but by the concern that his most precious objects (toys) suffer some damage in the transfer. Hence my desire to wrap to preserve the most beloved, wrap with a paper that means nothing to a child, newspaper, and today means something such just a few moments while reading, after this, is just wrapping paper, its meaning changes, its context is different."
