Artist Bio

Luis Pagan is devoted to balancing his work in marketing and the arts. Currently, he works as a Senior Account Manager within the digital marketing department for the NY Daily News. He supports digital platforms for a variety of small to medium businesses throughout NYC. Luis’ affinity for technology and entrepreneur-ism enables him to help businesses build their brand through different marketing strategies.

As an abstract artist, Pagan developed his painting style with watercolors during his study at Fashion Institute of Technology. He fine-tuned his process while finishing his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Purchase College and now uses latex/house paint in his work. “What allures me about this process is the challenge of controlling the uncontrollable.” said Pagan. “As inspiration, I use different color systems. My favorite is the colors of the Orishas.”

His latest project is learning the different percussion styles of bomba y plena from the masters at Los Pleneros de la 21. He also participates in art collaboratives that premise around social justice and its affects on housing for artists.
