The psychological artist journey, Carlos Luna James is a designer and a multimedia artist whose practice ranges from art direction, animation, and motion graphics design for marketing of movies and television shows to the creation of one-of-a-kind sculptural installations.
Born in 1979 in Ciudad Juarez, a wild and history-rich border town, Carlos later moved to Guadalajara, to pursue a degree in Design at one of Mexico’s most prestigious universities in that field, the Jesuit College (ITESO). While in school, he co-created a print magazine dedicated to designers, illustrators, and artists. Within two years, they were already publishing in Vancouver, Barcelona, and Mexico.
In 2007, having set an ambitious goal of becoming an independent artist and having his own studio, Carlos moved to Los Angeles. After working as a graphic designer for a few years, he joined FOX Studios as a digital art director, focusing on the development and creative implementation of innovative strategies in digital design, animation, and motion graphics to deliver premium content through storytelling. Carlos worked with companies such as FOX, Universal, Disney, DreamWorks, Paramount, Sony, Relativity, TNT, and TBS among others.
Throughout the years, Carlos has continued working on developing his distinctive artistic style, mainly influenced by sci-fi, comic books, urban art, and technology. Geometric shapes and patterns along with bright acid colors of his characters could be categorized as Pop Folk, clearly bringing forth the essence of his Mexican heritage.
