About the Artist
Luke Cisneros, began his journey after high school which led him to then obtain a Master’s Degree. After teaching undergraduate students and continuously learning, Cisneros eventually got the opportunity to travel to India and gain some knowledge from his time there. Eventually, he made his way back to the U.S.; traveled to Chicago and New York which led him back to Austin where he gave back to the community in the form of art.
“I remember my grandmother going to church at St. Julia’s on Lyons Road in Austin. I remember not understanding why she did it every week. It wasn’t until I got older I started to understand. The building was old and sometimes falling apart. It consists of ordinary materials like cement, wood, and plaster. However with faith that old building became the house of god to my grandmother. It gave her hope when she didn’t have it. It gave her community when she needed it. I see art as a way for myself to find that type of peace.”
