​​​​​​​"The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before." - Neil Gaiman

Lou is both a traditional and digital artist.
Traditional Art
Acrylic is his chosen medium. Lou’s art is mostly contemplative, characterised by heavy textures using brushes, palette knives, and other mark making tools. His subjects are varied, from human figures to landscapes, from floral and still life. His task is to provide mood and atmosphere that may transport the viewer to a similar personal experience.
Digital Art
Lou has more than 30 years of extensive experience in the advertising and media industry, from Manila, Vietnam and New Zealand. His background on motion graphics and animation has provided him the necessary skills for his digital paintings, which has strong environmental themes, combining storytelling with freehand Photoshop illustrations. He has minted NFT's just recently in the OBJKT platform.
