‘With tremendous cheek, quality and enthusiasm, he has achieved the impossible with each fresh issue of his surprise-packed Fanzine 137.’ Christian Lacroix
As a child his family moves to Barcelona. There he studies fashion design and when finished works for Thierry Mugler in Paris and later with Sybilla in Madrid. Being a passionate lover of images, art and photography, starts to collaborate with magazines as a freelance photographer and writer. Contributes to Acne Paper, Butt magazine, Dazed & Confused, El País, etc.
In 2002 he establishes himself as an art director and works for some fashion brands such as Loewe and Carolina Herrera.
In 2005 he works for a year as art director of Marie Claire (Spanish edition).
In 2004 he started his main professional project, his first own magazine: Fanzine137. It is an independent limited edition publication about art, image, fashion and people. One of the keys to Fanzine137’s style is mixing top-name personal artwork with young talent on the verge of discovery, alongside legendary, mythical artists rarely featured in today’s magazines. Fanzine137 is considered a kind of best-kept-secret for insiders, for all those people who love images and enjoy looking for special projects in printed paper.
In April 2008 his new editorial project is born, a special teenage magazine called Electric Youth. Since 2005 Luis Venegas is also a teacher of contemporary culture at the main fashion institute in Madrid.
