Bio

Louis N LaPierre hails from St. Paul Minnesota. He was born, learned to walk and create. He is still walking, and doesn’t remember when he began creating. His favorite thing to do is watch, and his second is to paint. Louis uses art to find comfort in the uncomfortable, and a way to cope with the inevitable. Since his graduation from CVA in Saint Paul Minnesota in 2005 he has adopted a vigorous art practice in a variety of mediums. His work can be seen in many venues and on projects such as album covers, glass work,  gig posters, steel, books, galleys, film, private collections and murals across the U.S.A.
