The first sons and daughters is an Art Project created by lugufelo to celebrate Native American heritage, a monument of remembrance for those cultures born on this continent.
The study of anatomy, the abstraction of forms and the experimentation on materials for the past three years have been my passion, all to develop a series of 6 sculptures that will become part of my project to honor Native Americans.
This human get disarm and dismembered, its parts forge by progress and nothing in those six pieces of modern metal will give away his true identity.
The Eye symbolizes Unity and Eternity, The Hand symbolizes Freedom, Success, Spiritual Power, and Protection, The Torso symbolizes the Courage, Wisdom and Strength, The Head symbolizes Balance, Acceptance of change, and Leadership, The Foot symbolizes Power and Alliance, The Full Body Sculpture: Soul (everything)

lugufelo / Luis G. Fernandez, a Venezuelan artist, was born on December 18, 1966, and has resided in Miami for the past fourteen years.
From an early age, he was exposed to, and influenced by, kinetics and op art - movements that develop and grow parallel to his early formation.
Inspired by his father, Rafael Fernandez Romero, a structural engineer specializing in bridges, lugufelo’s interest in construction and materials came early in his life. Together they frequently visited the construction sites of many different projects in Venezuela.
lugufelo’s introduction to the art world came about as a consequence to his rebellious nature: his art professor, wanting to channel the young talent he saw in lugufelo, suggested that he spend the summer studying art.
With the help of his aunt, Yuye D’Lima, classmate and also good friend of Jesus Soto, he got the opportunity to learn about visual effects and kinetic arts with the famous Venezuelan artist.
lugufelo combines the use of top technologies to create art that is unique and captivating, manipulating shapes to create shadows with diverse metals and multiple kinds of treatments.
