 A former attendee of the prestigious Art Students League of New York has secured his place in some of the finest collections and museums in America and Europe. His exquisite figurative paintings and portraits can be found in the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C; The European Museum of Modern Art, Barcelona, Spain; Steinway Hall, New York, N.Y. and The Federal Reserve, Washington D.C. among others.

Some of the most notable and distinguished personalities he has portrayed includes the iconic American composer Philip Glass, former Chairman of the federal Reserve Paul Volcker, MacArthur Fellow and founder of New Community Corporation Monsignor William Linder, Jazz legend Cándido Camero and Galician-American composer Octavio Vázquez Rodríguez.

His work has been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, the cover of the book "Piano Lessons With Claudio Arrau", MEAM Catalog of Works, American Artist Drawing Magazine, Art Renewal Center Catalog Raisonné, Downbeat Magazine and Puerto Rico’s leading newspaper El Nuevo Día.

Luis has received recognitions and awards from the Portrait Society of America International Portrait Competition, Figurativas 2015, Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists and the Art Renewal Center.

As a classically trained pianist, Luis studied under renowned Cuban-American pedagogue Germán Diez, a disciple and assistant to the late Chilean master Claudio Arrau. Arrau himself was a disciple of Martin Krause who studied with Franz Liszt, making Luis one of the few contemporary pianists with a direct lineage to Liszt and Beethoven. Luis is married to Maritza, an accomplished classical pianist and pedagogue with whom Luis enjoy playing four-hands and two piano repertoire. Luis and his wife live in N.J. with their children Cecilia and Pablo.
