Before we get into your work, can you just tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Luis Morales de la Cruz, I was born in Lima, Peru, currently live in Vienna, Austria and am a contemporary artist and illustrator.
We are curious about your past and your style. When did you get started with art, what are your preferred topics and how would you describe your style?
I'm a kid from the 90s! I am very inspired by the art of that time, pop art, commercial music, visual art, comics and anime! I think my style of expression in art is a combination of all these genres. They give me a lot of space to experiment with new techniques and colours! I've been drawing since ages, but for the last 6 years I've been officially making a living out of it.
To be part of our project, we asked each artist to address certain issues in their designs that we should all think about more often. Can you briefly explain what your designs are about and what message you want to convey with your designs for maezen?
My designs are about actual concepts and topics. I tried to capture microseconds of images in daily life that can say more about a situation than words.
