This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Madrid, Spain, in 1929, Luis Feito is a key figure in Spanish Abstract Expressionism.  He founded 'El Paso', the Madrid based collective of expressionists and informalists at the vanguard of Spanish art in the late 1950s.

Luis Feito's brief period as a figurative artist ended in the early 1950s, when, after discovering Cubism, he entered into the sphere of abstract art. In 1956, Feito was awarded a grant by the French government and moved to Paris, where he found inspiration in automatic art and L'Art Brut and Assemblage pioneered by artists such as Jean DuBuffet.

He began mixing sand with his thick oil paints and employing a reduced palette of black, white and ochre. In the early 1960s, Feito started to introduce a fourth, red, and his work slowly began more geometric. In 1981 he left Paris for Montreal, where he stayed until 1983, when he moved to New York.

Feito has been presented with the following AWARDS:
    1.    Comendador de las Artes y las Letras de Francia
    2.    Offical Order of Arts and Letters, France.
    3.    David Bright prize, XXX Venice Biennale.
    4.    U.M.A.M. Prize, I Paris Biennale.
