Wynwood Artist Luis Valle
Luis Valle, aka El Chan Guri, grew up in Miami, where he excelled in the arts from an early age. Valle received his formal training from Florida State University. There, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in visual arts while focusing on painting and metal fabrication. He later went on to receive a Master in Arts Degree from New York University, where he developed an interest in video and video art while continuing his progression as a painter.
Valle’s mural art can be seen in many major cities, including Miami, Orlando, and Denver. Several of Valle’s murals can be found in Wynwood. Valle also helped create a mural in Orlando dedicated to the victims of the Pulse shooting.
Vibrations: Urban Art Exhibition
Currently, Luis is very active in the Miami art scene creating commissioned murals, as well as street art pieces on businesses and neighborhoods throughout South Florida. His style can be easily recognized, as it is a blend of influences from indigenous cultures, psychology, shamanism, religion, spirituality, frequency, vibration and energy.
Vibrations: Urban Art Exhibition will feature some of the largest works from the Wynwood Artist. They pull from all dimensions of his style and expertise, and bring a vibrancy to the gallery walls. Vibrations will be on display from March 1st – 29th. Plus, Valle will present a live art segment during the opening night celebration. Click here to learn more about Luis Valle.
