Biography from American Design Ltd.:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Artist Luis Sottil, creator of “Naturalismo,” enjoys a special relationship with nature that he likes to share with the world through his art.  Sottil’s art is to be felt, not necessarily understood or explained.  He has devoted his life to capturing the emotions of his subjects on canvas and the emotions that one feels when in their presence.

Sottil studies, photographs and takes meticulous notes in the natural habitat of his subject before he paints the emotions that he experienced.  His work is meant to emulate nature with the elements of surprise that are always present, from beauty, fear, joy, passion and romance.  All human emotions are represented in nature.

His original masterpieces are created using minerals, vegetable dyes and natural substances.  He uses mother of pearl from the African sea to create iridescent white colors, to cochinilla powder from Oaxaca Mexico to create a brilliant cobalt blue.  Sottil uses nature to paint nature.

The result are colors that reflect light instead of absorb it.  As light changes throughout the day, the intensity of the emotion in the painting changes as well, just as in nature.

Since animals communicate through eye contact, the eyes in his paintings are 33% to 100% larger than scale.  This creates an effect that invites you into his paintings to create a connection with nature Sottil calls “Naturalismo.”

A hallmark of his art, the messages written around his paintings, is known as Sottil’s “love letters to nature.”
