'Apophenia' by Luis Lopa

If you're into large-scale, color-intensive, and multi-layered art pieces, Luis Lopa's work is an absolute delight. The Filipino artist, who works primarily in acrylic, paints beautiful contrast of textures, shapes, and lines with pops of vibrant colors reminiscent of kaleidoscopic patterns, but soothing to the eye. 

Luis graduated from the University of British Columbia with a major in Visual Arts. He started off his career in Vancouver, where his illustrations appeared on t-shirts, ski sets, and the walls of various galleries. Now, he's back in Manila and is currently working on finding his spot in the local art scene.

Luis draws inspiration from all forms of visual culture, from books and films to cartoons and fashion. His recent solo exhibition, Apophenia, showcased not only his raw and spontaneous visual power but also his open-minded versatility. You can check out the photos here.
