Music on the Walls!

Luis Lujan

For his inaugural exhibition, Luis Lujan (also known as one-half of the dynamic music duo Bohemia Viva) will be showing more than a dozen of his original drawings at The Studio Space. This body of work was created while Luis was touring with Bohemia Viva in Italy, Mexico, the US, and Argentina. Measuring only 10 x 5 inches each, Luis’s works are intentionally small. “I chose this size so that I can take them with me from one country to the next. I can’t exactly say in which country I started or finished each of them, but what I know for sure is that they have traveled with me, and we reconnected with each other in different parts of the world.”

Luis began studying drawing as a child, at the same school in Argentina as his father. Later at university, Luis majored in graphic design and. when his full-time music career allows, he “explores a different part of me and other emotions that can only be reflected on paper with lines. They become a mirror of what I’m feeling at that particular moment.”

Local art curator, artist, art teacher, and founder of Studio A Art Camp, Jessica Antonelli, finds that Luis’s body of work “depicts whimsical dances between organic and geometric designs. His musical background shows in the rhythmic patterns and textures of his work.”

Indeed, when viewing Luis’s oeuvre, it’s evident that his musical background has artfully influenced his love of line and composition. “I have always wondered how my music would look if I could put it on paper. I ask you to enjoy these simple lines hoping they will invoke something in your spirits, which is my only goal. I sign my drawings as Lyton as an homage to Oscar Lyton Balduin. I wanted to pay tribute to him for teaching me to look and for encouraging me to discover the simple and complex things that happen in life. It was because of him that I developed a taste for always knowing a bit more about things and to be interested in the different directions things and people can take,” Luis explained.

Reflecting on this opportunity to exhibit his work in San Miguel, Luis says “I feel an overwhelming emotion because I never thought these drawings would become a series, the thrill of framing them, the process of discovering that each of them was becoming part of a whole and that they will be seen for the very first time. I feel the satisfaction to share something simple, but that still is a piece of me. I am also grateful that I will be joined in this presentation by people who believe in what I do and support my new projects with positive energy.”

Please join us for “Reflections on Paper,” in which Luis will be showing his works, selling his Bohemia Viva CDs, and raffling off one of his pieces, “Jungle Spirit,” for only 100 pesos, or three chances for 200 pesos!
