Luis Henrique Ferreira Casagrande was born on May 18, 1993, in the Southern State of Santa Catarina, Brazil.
Casagrande started to explore painting when he was 13 years old; in which time he started to paint portraits with graphite and charcoal. His curiosity for art grew and he soon bought his first small canvas, a few cans of paint, brushes, and had his mother as posing model for his first piece art.
Luis began with a hyperrealistic style and migrated to modern expressionism shortly after.
In 2009, he started to dedicate more time to the art, always supported by his family and friends.
Luis was a Veterinary student when he decided to switch directions and study Graphic Design. He then left school to dedicate all his time for painting — his biggest inspiration.
Today, his paintings are inspired on expressive faces and bodies in harmony with it's surroundings.
Freshly relocated to California, Casagrande still explores his art and references by constantly striving to expand his horizons and share his passion in different parts of the globe.
Clique Movement is proud and honored to host Luis Henrique Casagrande's debut art exposition in California.
