"An artist attempts to express the simplest to the most complex thoughts through whatever means they have to work with. In essence we are all artists."
Inspired by life, Luis wants to share with the world what he sees through his eyes….his appreciation for color, shape, texture, movement…like if it was his first time. There is no getting used to it; it's always different. Exactly that is what opens his senses to experiment with what he's seen and felt to create his own magical world, blossomed by his curiosity.
A strikingly, explosive piece has no boundaries! In Luis' eyes there is no planning, no structure, no explanation, just feeling…and pure curiosity of the senses. He may start with a sketch of something that inspired him throughout the day, but after that it's up to his hand to just flow where his feelings take him. There's no designated starting point or color. It's all up to what he's feeling at the moment. He usually starts with acrylics and ends in oils. He uses a variety of tools and mediums, highly depending on his artist's knife, or even his trowel, for that extra je-ne-se-quoi.
Vicente Garcia- Marquez, the famous Russian Ballet Writer (author of "Massine" and "Ballets Russets") was the one responsible for the discovery of Luis Prendes' raw talent. At the young age of 7, his cousin Vicente gave him his first oil painting kit telling him this is something he could not ignore and had to pursue…that art was his calling in life. From that point forward, exactly that (art) is what completes him.
