Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 02, 2014
Life, identity, reality, status quo, intention and purpose... From very young, Luis Toledo, or La Prisa Mata, has explored our inquisitive reality, analyzing the hidden meaning of every image, and dissecting the mystery of beauty. As a meticulous collector, he gathers illustrations, textures, and fragments to create and built his images from. I recently ran into a series of works from Toledo 'Humans', depicting the form and figure in his usual insanley intricate and detailed collage process.

Illustration // Tuesday, September 06, 2011
Luis Toledo (aka La Prisma Mata) is an illustrator from Madrid, Spain, whose work gives the audience the feeling of entering into another world. The abstract imagery in most of Luis Toledo’s work is similar to what one would picture in a dream or distant memory. The colorful, free-form shapes in Toledo’s collection are paired up with intricate depictions of people, skulls, nature, and other familiar imagery.
