Piece description from the artist
Built in a remodeled shoe factory, the venerable Shoemakers Restaurant is a favorite among local residents and many travelers. Located adjacent to the Craddock Terry Hotel.
In his paintings, Luis Lozano attempts to create an air of realism by sculpting the light that fills the empty space around an object. He believes that light is essential to creating an illusion in painting, taking inspiration from artists like "Johannes Vermeer" and "John Singer Sargent".
Luis studied at the La Jolla Academy of Advertising and Design in La Jolla, California. His work in the advertising and design has given him experience with storyboards, thumb sketches, layout, design, and composition, while also providing insight about the relationship between artist and audience.
Luis currently lives in Monroe, Virginia.
