BIO: Luis (MELF) Esparragoza Melf was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1970. As part of his education he attended several workshops in drawing and painting and studied the human figure at Cristobal Rojas School in Caracas. At a later stage, he studied drawing and painting at the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art in the same city. In 1990 he made his first trip to Europe (France and Germany) and got the opportunity to work as a collaborator in the studio of artist Jürgen Peter in Hannover. During this trip, his work was shown with great success for the first time outside Venezuela.
Recent exhibitions include the world exhibition “EXPO 2000” in Hannover, Germany representing Venezuela, and the exhibition “Eierversum” also at the EXPO 2000. In 2001 he established his home and studio in Vienna, Austria and since then he has had various international exhibitions, including: – Solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Joven Moya in Vienna, Austria – Solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Moderno Juan Astorga Anta in Mérida, Venezuela – Caisa Cultural Center Gallery in Helsinki, Finland, 11th International Biennial of Portrait and Figure, Drawing 04, Tuzla, Bosnia-Herzegovina, The Venezuelan Art Hall of Budapest. Melf’s areas of artistic interest include the influence of colours, the concern for the individual and behavior within the environment.
For this exhibition he has developed a complex style using a variety of techniques and materials including printing, inks, acrylics, as well as industrial plastic on Italian canvas, ultimately resulting in a stunning three-dimensional artwork. He currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
