Biography

Born in Alicante, Luaiso started drawing when he was a child. Now is an Art Toys Designer, Illustrator and Graphic designer.

He studied graphic design at Espai Gráfic school and desktop publishing at EASDA becoming a true professional in illustration.

After moving to Barcelona he published in magazines collaborating with fashion photographers such as Xevi Muntané or Ferran Casanova and began with the creation of figures and sculptures in 2014. Since then, he hasn't stopped making true masterpieces.

At this moment, he combines being an artist with teaching. He is professor at Domestika on two courses that shows you how to create your own figures. In these courses, you will learn how to make a unique and three-dimensional figure adding your own style through Luaiso’s lessons. An Art Toy from the initial idea to its completion and final presentation.


Zombie Popeye & Zombie Bluto

Zombie Popeye by Luaiso López was launched for the occasion of the Popeye’s big 90th years Anniversary in 2019. ZC World celebrated the iconic sailor man's birthday by producing a series of Popeye figures. One of the best of course is this Zombie Popeye created by the spanish artist.

Zombie Bluto (or Brutus) is the second on this collection. Popeye needed his nemesis and so Zombie Bluto was produced by ZC World too. One of the latest releases from Luaiso for this 2020.

More Art Toys and Sculptures

Super Mario Series: Zombie Mario, Phantom Luigi and Yoshi From the Black Lagoon. 

The zombie issue on Luaiso’s work had a first representation on the Zombie Mario, a 11 '' resin figure produced with Pobber Toys. It was Sold Out just a few weeks after the launching. Following this release, other monster versions of characters from the Nintendo video games have been shown on his social media: Phantom Luigi, Yoshi From the Black lagoon or even the mushrooms.

Anxious Mickey and Maniac Pluto are two more of the creations by Luaiso. The toy artist shows a different Mickey more interested in staying inside his own world and very concerned about having contact with the exterior. Don’t worry Anxious Mickey, now we are under lockdown you can work on it. The best partner for this mouse is a Pluto with a big fake smile that seems to laugh nervously.
