Luis Torras was born on December 29, 1912 in Vigo, Spain. He began painting at 12 years old and continues to do so today at age 102 in his home studio. Torras studied at the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid. In the Spanish Civil War two bullet wounds to his head left him partially deaf. He taught at the Vigo School of Arts and Crafts for decades and has been exhibited widely in Spain. In 1998, Torras donated 68 of his paintings to the Casa das Artes, Vigo.
