Nicolas Luna grew up in rural Mexico, the son of a Mexican quantum chaos physicist and an American mother who taught, wrote, edited and translated. Part of his youth was spent in the United States. In California, he studied Cultural Anthropology and Art, specializing in printmaking at UCSC. As an adult, he has lived and often worked as an artist and teacher in Germany, Mexico, Hungary, and Thailand. Each place, the people he met and the need to constantly reflect and investigate in order to become a better teacher, has influenced his art and provided inspiration on his journey to find peace in paradox. His work has been sold worldwide in such countries as Thailand, Mexico, USA, Malaysia and Hungary.
My drawings are abstracted from various aspects of nature. Each of them is a prospective sculptural essence. They are conceived from enhancements, maturities, multiplications and intensification of forms. My main subjects are people because they are a world, a landscape, and an animal all bundled into one. My work is strongly inspired by the Mexican muralists whose murals I grew up seeing as well as by the delicate line-work which characterizes Thai and much of Asian art. The American expressionists’ use of color and bold strokes are how my American side shows itself.
