For his inaugural live concert and exhibition, Luis Lujan (also known as one-half of the dynamic music duo Bohemia Viva) will be showing more than a dozen of his original drawings at The Palm Cabaret and Bar. This body of work was created while Luis was touring with Bohemia Viva in Italy, Mexico, the US and Argentina.
With most of the pieces measuring only 10 x 5 inches each, Luis’ works are intentionally small. “I chose this size so that I can take them with me from one country to the next. I can’t exactly say in which country I started or finished each of them, but what I know for sure is that they have traveled with me, and we reconnected with each other in different parts of the world.”
Art curator, artist, art teacher and founder of ‘Studio Art Camp’ Jessica Antonelli remarks that “Luis’ body of work “depicts whimsical dances between organic and geometric designs. His musical background shows in the rhythmic patterns and textures of his work.” Indeed, when viewing Luis’ oeuvre it’s evident that his musical background has artfully influenced his love of line and composition.”
Among his music compositions depicting life experiences, this show will include a series of songs created in collaboration with Carlos Moyano del Barco, an Argentinian poet widely popular in South America. With a wide range of influences and a big vocal range, Luis seeks to create an intimate experience between him and his audience; combining the vintage and the modern together to make unique sounds which will transport audiences to a magic world of beautiful melodies.
Luis Lujan will showcase his original music and drawings in Puerto Vallarta at The Palm Cabaret on Wednesday, January, 23rd at 6.30 pm. Tickets are available at The Palm’s box office and online at www.thepalmcabaret.com.
“Luis’s gorgeous tenor voice with just the right balance of vibrato will thrill you to the core along with his guitar accompaniment on each song.” Deb Jean
