“In the beginning of painting is a struggling soul,
thus painting is a phenomenon of the soul.
The work must redeem a passionate soul.
In a poetic image, the soul states its presence.”
To look at a painting by Lugo is like sifting through an archeological dig, moving through layer upon layer of earth. Barely recognizable forms emerge into a conscious gestalt where meanings galvanize through the viewer’s own personal references and connections.

He studied fine arts in the workshops of painters Jose Luis Hernandez and Sando Berger during the early years of his formation as an artist.
