I am Luis-Manuel Lambrechts. Born in the 90’s, based in Belgium with Peruvian roots. I make illustrations, murals, posters, paintings, and more. My work can be divided into two parts, being commissioned work and personal work, or paintings. I would describe my paintings as colourful, detailed, figurative and a bit naive. To create my paintings I like to start from what I know, this results in works that hide fragments and subjects of my own life, mixed in a fictive setting. I’d rather think of myself as an observator instead of an artist, because standing still at certain, simple moments, gives me the necessity to capture them in some way and to create. My paintings mostly grow without sketches, instead I surrender to my intuition and spontaneity.
I graduated in 2016 from Luca school of arts, Brussels and earned my Masters degree in Graphic storytelling.
