Luis Tavales

b.1958

Luis Mario Tavales is a self taught artist and native New Yorker. Since 2008, he has pursued his dream of becoming an artist. “For me, art is a healing place. When I’m there, I forget aches, pains and the stress that life holds. Art is the way I commune with a power greater than me. It compels me to create.” Since 2008, his work has appeared in various exhibits, such as: “Salon De Eros” at the Greenpoint Gallery, ” Postcards From The Edge” at the Luhring Augustine, Chaim & Read and the Sikkema Jenkins & Co. galleries. The GMHC exhibits at the Leslie/ Lohman Museum, the NOHO NY Art Walk and the La Pregunta Arts Café exhibits. His work currently hangs in the offices of the Brooklyn Board of Education and GMHC. His work has also hung at the offices of GMAD and the lobby of The Village Voice. In June 2013, he was featured in an article in the Queens Tribune.
