Art Department: Luis Perez Jauregui
Artworks Luis Perez Jauregui
Luis Perez Jauregui creates character transformations. Consequently, the artist's self-portrait becomes an anti-self-portrait. Still, his body of work comprises a multiplicity of his very own, characteristic personae. I asked him to create a piece for the Art Department series.
He concludes: 'In my opinion, the aesthetic of Lynn & Horst is very clean and minimal, with a dark provocative side to it, so I wanted to create a character that best represented that. The harness is something I made myself specially for this character. It was inspired by the art of S&M and rope bondage. Instead of rope though, I used a strand of metallic beads to transform an otherwise simple harness into something more modern.'
