Luis Antonio Santos is a visual artist working primarily with painting and photography. His practice revolves around the tension between contradictions and engages with themes relating to identity using time, space, and memory as points of departure. Oil painting, screenprinting, and digitally manipulated photography as aesthetic strategies are often employed along with the use of everyday utilitarian materials as subject matter to examine these ideas.

Since 2010, he has been exhibiting independently in the Philippines at various galleries including; West Gallery, Silverlens Gallery, Blanc Gallery, Finale Art File, MO Space, and most recently, the Drawing Room. He has also been included in several group exhibitions in Manila, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.
