Luis Cohen Fuse
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1944, in a family of European roots, from an early age he expressed interest in the design. He studied ceramics and plastic arts at the Escola de Belas Artes in Mar del Plata and in 1973 graduated in Architecture from the University of Buenos Aires. During his studies he collaborated as a designer of costumes and set design for several theater and dance companies. His graduation trip to Europe led him to live in Barcelona, where he devoted himself body and soul to artistic work, adopting dual Argentine-Spanish nationality in 1976. Already in the 80's he installed his atelier in Madrid and after a trip to Portugal, in 1982, he fell in love with the light and colors of Estoril where he decided to reside permanently. He never hid his admiration for the East, which is evident in his works on a constant basis. He has always been a multifaceted artist, with a vast tile work, fresco mural, jewelry design and sculpture, spread all over the world. He died in Estoril on 4 July 2019.
