Born into an Anglo-Italian family, Louis showed an artistic aptitude at an early age. His interest in art intertwined his passion for music and pop culture, particularly the album cover art of the 70s and 80s.
He cites Andy Warhol amongst his major influences - in particular the artist's high-contrast silkscreen prints and simple graphic elements. Describing his own art as “taking trash and turning it into treasure”, Louis expertly fuses elements from the conceptual and pop art traditions by combining authentic photographs with graphic components from public records, newspapers and memorabilia.
His experimental nature has inspired him to convey his powerful celebrity portraits via the unconventional medium of aluminium and cast resin.Through a meticulous attention to detail and the selection of the finest materials, his work mirrors our consumer society and our desire for luxury brands and goods.
