Lou Gargokken | EAST 2017

As you may know by now, Lou is one of my favourite people in the world. Not only he’s super creative, but he loves sharing his ideas and art to the world, and that is something not everyone is willing to do… He shares his passion towards Art as a Professor, avid Instagrammer, traveller, and of course Artist and Architect.

“Humor and melancholy are an essential part of his composition. Earthy textures, exaggerated expressions, horns, wings and fangs resemble creatures from the mythological world… I guess these creatures are in some way the physical manifestation of my emotions, my madness and joy”.

Come and meet him this November 18th & 19th at the East Austin Studio Tour #95, you’ll be delighted, I swear 😉
