Luis Estrada

 Upon first encounter with Luis Estrada’s work it is evident that the artist is obsessed with the weather. His paintings and drawings are peppered with meteorological symbols and diagrams. One quickly notices that entangled among the weather forecast is information about the local train systems — freight and transit — as well as images from professional wrestling. The works seem to be one man’s attempt at grappling with and controlling the quotidian deluge of information cast at us.
