Luciano Lozano

Luciano Lozano was born the same year man first traveled to the Moon, which may be the reason why he has traveled a lot since childhood. Originally self-taught, he has been working as an illustrator since 2007, when he completed a Postgraduate in Creative Illustration at Eina School in Barcelona. In 2012 he won the Junceda Prize for the best book published abroad for Operation Alphabet, published by Thames and Hudson in several countries.

In 2015 he illustrated I Don’t Like Snakes, written by Nicola Davies and published by Walker books. It was chosen as one of the best children's books of 2015 by Buzzfeed.com and was also shortlisted for the Book Award of the School Library Association of the United Kingdom. The same year, he illustrated The Bonsai Pruner, published by Tres Tigres Tristes, which won the El Dragón Lector Award for best illustrated children’s book of 2015.

In 2017 he released his first book as both author and illustrator, Bea baila, originally published by Tres Tigres Tristes and translated into English as Diana Dances (Spring 2019). It will also be published in Italy, France, Turkey, and Russia throughout 2018. Luciano regularly collaborates with publishers and magazines worldwide. His illustrations reflect his strong sense of color and texture, his frequent use of traditional techniques, and an undercurrent of subtle humor running throughout. He currently lives in Barcelona, Spain.
