Luciano Lozano was born the same year Man traveled to the Moon. That may be the reason why he has loved travel since he was a child...

In 2012 he won the Junceda Prize for his picture book book, Operation Alphabet (Thames and Hudson). In 2015 he illustrated 'I Don’t Like Snakes (Walker), which was named one of the best titles released in 2015 by Buzzfeed.com. It was also shortlisted for the Book Award by the School Library Association in the United Kingdom. Also in 2015, Luciano published The Bonsai Pruner (Tres tigres tristes), which won him the El Dragón Lector award for Best Illustrator of 2015. In 2017 Luciano saw the publication of his first author/illustrator work, Bea Baila (Tres tigres tristes).
Luciano collaborates with worldwide publishers and magazines regularly. His illustrations reflect his strong sense of color and texture and an undercurrent of subtle humor.
