Moments de Surprise. Catalogue 2010. Acrylic on Canvas. 36 X 36. Copyright Luis London.
Luis London explores the impact of childhood emotions on adult lives in a series of 13 paintings titled: “Repercussions” The paintings are rendered in a style that combines contemporary graphic design and American Pop Art.
As portraits, they are Warhol-esque: square with bold, deep colours and shapes reminiscent of screenprinting.London introduces texture and complexity with patterns that cast light and shadow onto a simple rendering. The result is big, bold paintings that convey their intense emotional experiences: joy, rage, surprise, sadness, happiness and more.
