• At the age of 14, Jesus and his family immigrated to Mexico and he entered The International Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico City, "La Esmeralda".
• Inspired greatly by the ancient designs of the Aztecs and Mayans, Leuus has developed a distinctive style, based on ancient history but unmistakably Contemporary and Modern.
• He paints monumental figures that are figured to express love, sadness, the rich and the poor, and life and death.
• Working preferably on masonite and linen, Jesus Leuus composes his rich colors by hand mixing the acrylic pigment. He uses a marble dust mixed with the acrylic paint to achieve texture. His recognizable style reflects a well balanced composition of minimalized color, lines and figures.
