About the artist: At age of three Luis Figueroa and his family moved from Mexico to Asheboro, North Carolina. For the last 23 years Luis has concentrated exploring creative connections with nature in visual art classes at Southwest Randolph High School and at Appalachian State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art. When not creating art Luis enjoys spending time with his family and exploring outside. During the summer of 2016 he received much inspiration camping, hiking, and star-gazing during a trip to the area of Tierra Blanca, Mexico. He cites the urban muralist and painter, Nosego and comic book art as significant creative influences. The Four Saints Brewing Company Art Wall Project is Luis' first public commission.

About the project: The inaugural Art Wall Project selected five visual artists to create separate compelling works of art on-site utilizing a designated 12 feet long and 4.5 feet high blank wall in the Four Saints Tasting Room. Each of the five works of art are on display for a period of three months. The complete Art Wall Project, with rotating art installations began March 2016 and concludes October 2017. Each artist will be honored with a public meet-and-greet reception. A goal of the project is to offer insight and foster dialogue between the local community and the regional visual artists.
