Louis Carreon, one of today’s premiere American Contemporary Artists, is a Southern California Native who came up during the 90’s in LA Street and Hip Hop culture. Through trials and tribulations Louis has risen from the streets, conquered addiction, made his mense in prison and surrendered to art. Taking a world he knows so well and sharing his message through not just his Art, but the creation of Art and the feelings and energy that it takes to create it. The mosaic of methods that express his Art include installations, conceptualism and outdoor works which add depth to Louis’ acclaimed Series. Louis’ recent works include commissions in Los Angeles for SOHO House and Mondrian an exposition at Expo Chicago, a collaborated with 2015 Champion Chicago Blackhawks and Autism Speaks to paint Stanley Cup for Charity. And the Famous One Mag Mile Building on historical Michigan Avenue hosted The Drip Factory Pop-up Studio. Louis’ passion for being of service as well as an increasing international collector base have encouraged him to be more interactive with the Contemporary Art community and his success in 2015 is a great indication that he is being recognized and welcomed with enthusiasm and a paralleled passion.
