About Lou

Lou Garza was born in Monterrey Nuevo Leon Mexico, spent his first years in Washington DC and returned to Mexico until adolescence. Lou started making ceramic sculpture at the early age of 16 years where he had as teacher the ceramist Gerardo Azcunaga and it was not until 2008 after studying Romanesque and Renaissance art in Florence Italy that he decided to start as an independent sculptor.

Lou studied architecture at the TEC DE MONTERREY Campus Monterrey, doing some extra semesters of architecture at Aalborg, Denmark and continuing his academic career in Mexico, doing a master’s degree in arts with an emphasis in visual arts at the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon.

Lou worked professionally in urbanism and architecture projects for the Danish firm KBH + ARKITEKTER with headquarters in Copenhagen, Habitat for Humanity with headquarters in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia during the government of Nuevo Leon in the Public Construction, Industrial Designer in ceramic products in the Valero Hermanos SA de CV company among others.

Lou has worked for many years in the academic areas related to art, such as CEDIM in Monterrey Mexico, at Technology University of Santa Catarina as an Audiovisual project advisor, at the Anahuac Mayab University in Merida as a teacher of sculpture and ceramics, at the Metropolitan Univeristy of Monterrey in the areas of creativity and architecture and as a teacher of principles of design, models and prototypes and cinematographic creation at the TEC DE MONTERREY.

Lou was Academic Director of Arte AC during 2017 in charge of the programs and professors of careers such as Graphic Design, Clothing Design and Graphic Design.

Promoters & Fellow Artists

We have a team of curators, museographers, promoters and collaborators in Europe, the United States and Mexico.

Thanks to our friends promoters of culture in Texas, The Projecto and the goodwill of other gallerists, we are also in several cultural agendas around the planet.
