ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Venezuela, Luis Guillermo Fernandez Lovera (lugufelo) came to the US to escape mounting political and social instability in his home country.
Many of his pieces reflect the contradiction between hard exteriors and deeper meaning, probably as a result of early life in a country fraught with contradictions and strife. His use of bright colors, though, also reflects the artist’s positive outlook on life and his constant search for peace and happiness. lugufelo is known for his unique perception of geometric shapes and the kinetic movement created by layering shapes and forms. Drawing inspiration from Naum Gabo, Pablo Picasso and Victor Vasarely, lugufelo studied briefly under the great maestro, Jesus Rafael Soto, melding all of these influences into his unique and lively art today. lugufelo currently lives and works in Miami, FL. His artwork is represented in private collections in the US, Mexico, Norway and Venezuela, as well as public installations and exhibitions around the world.

VISION

MY ART IS MULTI-DIMENSIONAL, ALWAYS PROVIDING AN INTEGRATED EXPERIENCE THAT INVOLVES MANY SENSES DURING THE SHORT TIME THE AUDIENCE INTERACTS WITH MY PUBLIC WORK.
Of Course, The Average Person Sees The Actual Metal Art; They May Even Touch It Or Climb On It. But, A Key Component To My Art Is The Casting Of Shadows That Change As The Sunlight Hits The Object, Thus Creating A Secondary Dimension For The Viewer.
I Also Often Integrate Computer Generated Imaging Into My Work To Create A Unique, Interactive Experience. During Darkness, Lights, Reflectors, Or Different Computer Images Can Be Integrated To Provide A Different Type Of Shadowing.
Even The Wind Passing Through My Art Provides For An Additional Sensory Experience. My Goal Is Always To Create An Evolutionary Piece That Constantly Challenges The Spectator To Understand It At A Deeper Level Over Years Of Viewings, Visits And Admiration.
