Born in Venezuela and raised in Florida, Luis Urribarri arrived in New York City in 2012, after obtaining an art degree in Florida. Urribarri worked with the major contemporary furniture retailer West Elm for 8 years. His role with the company helped him polish his skills in art, interior design, visual merchandising, and art installation.
His work melds Latin American visual references and folkloric techniques with North American design and architecture to create revolutionary contemporary and abstract art. Urribarri searches for a dialogue between raw and refined, revealed and obscured—elements that are significantly distinct from each other yet intertwined by their casual, often surprising placement in our modern world.
