My name is Luis Oliveira and I was born in Lisbon, Portugal. I graduated from Louisiana State University with a BA in art history. I have cerebral palsy, so I use a Macintosh to paint with a device which lets me to use my computer through head control. I started to paint since I was a kid and I taught myself how to paint with photoshop.

Who inspires me to paint is the band METALLICA, because they create great music. They such good believe in their music and they don’t give up as musicians. I reflect that in my art. As an artist and I believe in my art and want to show people I don’t give up painting because of METALLICAS inspiration!
