Luis Diaz has worked as an illustrator and graphic artist for television, print, video games and other interactive media for over 10 years. Diaz also created over 40 paintings for the new Garbage Pail Kids and Wacky Packages. He was named one of "Six Artist You Need To Know" by CITY LINK Magazine in 2008 and named "Artist of the Month" by ImagineFX Magazine (Issue 56). His work has also been seen in Corel Painter Magazine and the prestigious Exposé by Ballistics Publishing and twice in Spectrum: The Best of Fantastic Art Annuals. "A professor in college once told me while critiquing my artwork, 'You make people feel sane.' From that moment, I learned the power that art can have on its audience," says Diaz. He is currently working on narrative art and developing his painting series called Creaturas. Diaz is a graduate from The Maryland Institute, College of Art (MICA). Diaz shares his home studio in Miami with artist Liza Sylvestre.
