Inspired by the work of Francis Bacon and the British abstract cubist Ben Nicholson, Louro’s work acts as his way of portraying feelings, emotions, and perceptions - both consciously and unconsciously - through detailed geometric compositions balanced with lines and shapes. Using multiple techniques in each artwork, his concern lies with creating a dialogue with colour and form, rather than over-focusing on the subject matter.
