Luis Jimenez is a sculptor whose work marries elements of pop culture and social commentary with allusions to his Mexican-American heritage. Known for his large, colorful fiberglass sculptures that often incorporate neon and electrical lighting, Jimenez extended his bold choices of materials to his subject matter, creating confident and expressive figures while exaggerating cultural stereotypes. Jimenez was tragically killed in 2006 while working in his studio when a large piece of Blue Mustang, a sculpture he was creating for the Denver Airport, fell and crushed his leg. The large, 32-foot tall, cobalt statue is now mounted at the runway approach to the airport's terminal where its frightening visage and involvement in the artist's death make it a much debated work of public art.

Jimenez’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and his public commissions appear in Cleveland, Denver, New York, El Paso, Pittsburgh, and Albuquerque, among others.
