Luis Berros

Luis Berros is a lifelong "semi-native" of South Florida, having been born in Jersey City, NJ before moving with his family to Miami as a child. When he demonstrated ability and an interest in art his parents brought him to an art teacher in an effort to channel his energy away from his other talent, mischief.

"My work is my attempt to capture the moment where one point of view finds it opposite and discovers compliments, and indeed, a completeness, that was that was absent just a moment before."

Spending several years as a student in Lesver de Quiros' studio he developed his skill working with oil and canvas and gained a sensibility for color, composition and the undeniable power of fine art.

In high school Luis was a student of Eric Jenkins at Miami Jackson Senior High, a teacher whose influence still flows in the work he is now creating. As he refined his technical skill along with his knowledge and appreciation of art history, Luis' own style and interpretive arc began to emerge. Finding an outlet for his creativity, and a welcoming community in the street art clubs of South Florida in the early 1980's, Luis experienced firsthand the power of art without limits.

"My role is to document the collision, and I am traveling at high speed towards something I recognize as myself."

Today he has become engrossed by the under lying narrative of his work, which is to accelerate fine art and street art along the same plane and document the collision.
