Jesus Leuus was born in El Paso, Texas. At the age of 14 he and his family immigrated to Mexico. Leuus currently resides and works in Mexico City with his three daughters, one son and three grand-children. As a child, Leuus knew his life would be devoted to making art. At the age of 14 he entered The International Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico City, `La Esmeralda". He studied painting and sculpture under the guidance of Augustine Lazo, Rodrigues Lozano, Orozco Romero and Alfredo Zalce. 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. Leuus believes that he has succeeded in bringing his art to simplification over the last ten years. The time dedicated to painting is evident in his work and has brought him to be known as one of the leading Modern painters of Mexico today. Jesus Leuus has exhibited in many cities across the United States such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Tucson and Miami. His International exhibitions took him Barcelona, Madrid, Canada, Venezuela and Quebec. The works of Jesus Leuus can be seen in some of the finest galleries across the World, and are a part of the collection of The Modern Museums of Art in Mexico City, New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Tucson.
