Arturo Luz has devoted his sixty plus year career to a highly stylized version of minimal austerity.
Through discipline, he has built his reputation around distinct visual worlds stripped of distraction and sentiment. As such, his aesthetic introspection leads to realities and forms that are designed rather than reproduced — however, in his cities of the past series, Luz captures the grand architecture of ancient structures and transforms such into the elegant minimalist edifices that feature his signature geometric style. A truly captivating display of stylistic genius.
