How Contemporary Artist Louis Carreon Defines Religious Iconography

By Thomas Herd
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written” Galatians 3:13
After a tumultuous life of substance addiction followed by a sobering prison sentence for drug trafficking, today, contemporary artist Louis Carreon focuses on reinventing the narrative of his art. Though his personal evolution is constant, today he draws from the adversities of his past to create his art. But in everything he does, redemption remains at the core—a theme he knows well. From of the throes of darkness, Carreon emerged as a visionary contemporary artist. Known to challenge the ideology of traditional gallery artists, Carreon’s art defies the norm with consistent tones of religion and spirituality.
