Felix (FELO) Lugo is an American award winning artist, who is best known for his use of strong color and interesting perspectives. He studied at New York Technical College and majored in Advertising Production Management. For 13 years he helped produce posters and color-centered projects including for organizations such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Botanical Gardens, Guggenheim Museum and the MTA.
In 1990, Lugo was recognized for his professional efforts and awarded the exceptional award of Craftsman of the Year by the New York City Printing House Craftsman. This is a local club of The International Association of Printing House Craftsmen, an international organization dedicated to individuals in the printing and graphic arts industry.
In 1992, Lugo co-produced a graphic book called Barnabus. He showcased his new book at the Long Island Sport Show. That same year he created a graphic printing process called Reflecto Card Design, which utilizes offset printing with foil stamping.
His interest in painting began when he befriended Angelo Romano, an artist known for his angel frescos. It was with Romano when Lugo began to learn how to paint. Romano encouraged Lugo to continue painting and later introduced him to Esteban Navarro, Cuban born artist, for instruction and advice.
After a serious back injury due to a car accident, Lugo re-discovered his interest in the arts as a distraction from his pain. Painting is a form of meditation for him and it has helped with anxiety and stress while promoting emotional healing.
