Tastefully genius may be an understatement in describing the works of Spanish illustrator, graphic designer, and art director Luis Toledo Laprisamata. His works are never short of his heart and are always full with stunning detail and intricacy. A believer of life after death, Laprisamata fondly incorporates the concept into many of his digital artworks.
Life, identity, reality, status quo, intention and purpose. These are some of the central inspirations of Laprisamata’s works. A number of these come from a compilation of other works — images, textures, and small pieces of artworks he would come across. He would then put them all together and form collages of powerful visual harmony, which serves as a reflection of his views on beauty and form.
Time, past, present and future and eternity. Laprisamata’s view on time is marked by the relishing of moments, no matter how fleeting they may be. Awareness of the present must always be a virtue kept — noticing and appreciating even the tiniest details. In his works, there are stories even in the minutest details. He has created them in such that the audience will be compelled to have a closer look, not just to see the big picture, but more importantly the smaller details that it holds. Much like life, the beauty of his works will not be without their tiny, intricate, awe-inspiring details.
Death, spirituality, necessity, beginning and end. For Laprisamata, what happens after the cessation of life in the living world is just as, if not, more important than life itself. He believes that when people die, they are merely leaving their earthly bodies behind in pursuit of another life stage.
Luis Laprisamata is skilled particularly in manipulating and creating digital graphics using platforms like Adobe Photoshop. He has worked for a number of prominent clients including HBO, Warner Music, Movistar, Intel, Nivea, Disney Resorts, and Fosters Hollywood to name a few.
