Luis Estrada (b. 1982)

 Upon first encounter with Luis Estrada’s work it is evident that the artist is obsessed with the weather, his paintings and drawings are peppered with meteorological symbols and diagrams. One quickly notices that entangled amongst the weather is information about the local train systems — freight and transit — as well as images from professional wrestling.
