Born in Sonora, Mexico, Lui Ferreyra moves to Colorado at age eleven. Early recognition by his teachers leads to numerous awards, including a substantive scholarship, and his first solo exhibition at the Foothills Art Center in Golden, Colorado.
In 1998, Ferreyra graduates with a BFA from the University of Colorado, where he studies under noted artists Stan Brakhage, Chuck Forsman, and Dr. George Rivera. Rivera includes him in a select group of artists with whom he shows internationally in Mexico City and Santiago, Chile.
Recent noteworthy achievements include a commission by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and his inclusion by New American Paintings in their 66th issue.
