Luis Sánchez Pérez comes from a family with a long-term tradition of artists within it. He has specialized in traditional finishings such as lime or gypsum stuccoes, sgraffito, and water or gold size gilding.
Working with materials as traditional as lime or gypsum implies that the artisan must know the setting times for them and how they must be applied depending on different factors ¡such as: climate, room temperature, the supporting element or the function of the product.
Luis Sánchez Pérez believes that, for the correct application of a constructive technique – especially if it’s a traditional technique – it is necessary for the artisan to know the material the artisan is using and what its performance is as a cyclic material. Only this way – respecting the setting times of the materials and their dosage – may one be able to apply the materials correctly and obtain the expected results.
At the early age of 14 he started to work as an apprentice, receiving advice and indications from master artisans. Little by little, he began to master different techniques until he achieved a level of specialization which enabled him to carry out his craft.
