Luis Sanchez, born May 25th, 1968, lived the first ten years of his life in Mexico City with his family, a cuban-born father, a Mexican-Lebanese mother, and an older brother and sister. At age seven, his parents recognized his innate talen and enrolled him in Mexico's prestigious Museo De Bellas Artes. A Passionate and diverse family including artisans, dancers, and bullfighters surrounded his early life. Sanchez's family immigrated to the United States in 1979. Sanchez attended Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA, after graduating from high school in 1987. Art history, life drawing and prespective drawing were the focus of his studies. After a lifetime of chronic kidney disease and years of hemodialysis machines, he received a successfull kidney transplant in 1993. Unable to return to his studies, Sanchez's focused on teaching himself the subtleties of human anatomy through books, at times sketching for 12 hours a day. "My transplant was a rebirth; it's difficult to explain, but it certainly puts life, everyone in it and everything in crystal clear perspective," says the artist. This Mexican-born painter executes his works from the depth and wisdom of one who has lived a fine line between life and death.
