Starting a career as painter at the tender age of 7, Carlos Luis Sánchez is a Venezuelan artist based in Maracaibo. His talent developed rapidly as Carlos has been drafting and painting daily since he was 14. This is the artist’s way to socialise with others, he says. Carlos motives are often linked to indigenous, because he grew up in the Zulia-state, which is the epicentre of the Wayuu tribe. Carlos studied plastic arts in the renown “Universidad del Zulia” in Maracaibo. Today he is one of the most promising young talents of the country.
