I received an image of Luis’ work that was sent to me via facebook. I have never seen graphic design quite like this before. Being such a huge fan of 1970’s Black culture, Luis’ creations blew me away. His designs are very Afrocentric, which of course is appealing to me. His intricate patterns of iconic figures like James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Prince and Marvin Gaye are so beautiful that they speak for themselves. I think you are going to like his work.

Hi, my name is Luís Alves. I’m a Illustrator and graphic designer based in Lisbon, Portugal. I love mixing patterns from old tiles and textiles and in this way I try to create something new, something that I really like!
