RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK - Louis Carreon

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Louis Carreon's "Trap supper x"
"After a tumultuous life of substance addiction followed by a sobering prison sentence for drug trafficking," today, California born Louis Carreon has found a Christian voice authentically his own. Using the Old Masters as a frame of reference, he fuses African and South American tribal and folk motifs with tattooed and scared markings of street art modernism to tell his multi-faceted spiritual journey towards reinvention. This week, we read about his journey in V Magazine, and that's why Louis Carreon is our religious artist of the week.
