Luis López-Chávez graduated from the Professional Academy of Plastic Arts in Manzanillo in 2007 and from the Higher Institute of Art in Havana in 2013. In 2012, he received a scholarship for the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden. In his work, he has been conducting a research exercise on the development of plastic form and the frictions it generates when introduced into the logical space of the world as an affirmation. Based on these frictions with the socio-historical context, language or with art itself, he proposes a visuality contained between a conceptual methodology and an unconscious pulse, between a philosophical proposal and a poetic image. In 2015, he was invited to the 12th Havana Biennial, with the project Los síntomas del engaño exhibited at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana.
Among his main solo exhibitions are: El acto total, organized by Galleria Continua, at the Unión Nacional de Arquitectos e Ingenieros de la Construcción de Cuba (UNAICC) (2019); Las Contravenciones, El Apartamento, Havana (2019); Contra los poetas, Galería Servando, Havana (2017); It’s Useless, Museo Droguería Johnson, Havana (2016); Once upon a time in the country, Fundación Ludwig de Cuba (2014); Fuera de Campo, Centro de Desarrollo de las Artes Visuales, Havana (2013).
