Luis Burgos Flor (born May 3, 1939 in Guayaquil) is an Ecuadorian painter known for his futuristic style. His art has been shown at the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art).

He was a graduate of Guayaquil's Escuela de Bellas Artes and disciple of Theo Constanté.

His home in downtown Los Angeles, California, has been filmed by several TV stations: It is filled with his paintings, and even the dining room table, chairs, and kitchen cabinets are pieces that Burgos Flor has converted into art.

Every year in late July, Burgos Flor puts together cultural events with art shows, poetry, and historical facts commemorating the anniversary of the founding of Guayaquil, his hometown.[1][2]

Most of Burgos's paintings are abstract, although he has often portrayed famous Ecuadorian artists, writers, and poets such as Julio Jaramillo, Enrique Gil Gilbert, and Karina Galvez.
