Artist Talk: Creation Beyond Borders

Artist Talk: Creation Beyond Borders

Presented by CSUS Art Department (Art History Club) at Sacramento State (CSUS) - Library Gallery

Luis R. Campos-Garcia aka Lurac is a multidisciplinary artist, graphic designer, cultural worker, and educator from Mexico City. Luis’ art is an invitation to creativity and imagination combined with deep reflection on social issues and cultural diversity. Inspired by Mesoamerican and Mexican culture, street art, cartoons, and everyday life, Luis blurs the lines between fantasy and reality addressing themes that question the hegemony prevalent today. His work explores the use of visual art, graphic design, and music to convey emotions and to communicate ideas. Also, he is interested in developing experiences that engage the public in the art making process. Lurac’s visual works include painting, photography, digital art, drawing, and printmaking. He collaborated with Andrew Bell (Zero Forbidden Goals) with the project Pop-up Street Corner Stage and Mobile Gallery / Art Making Space that was awarded a Block by Block Grant by The Crocker Art Museum. Luis is currently the Arts Director / Curator at Sol Collective Arts and Cultural Center.
