From Psycho Killer to Painter

22144 ratings | 1298141 views
Check out the Best of VICE here: http://bit.ly/VICE-Best-Of Peruvian artist LU.CU.MA spent 27 years in jail for the murder of his brother, among other crimes. After his release, LU.CU.MA—short for Luis Cuevas Manchego—swore to turn himself around. He traded the machine guns, hand grenades, and knives that he once used to ambush buses for art supplies. VICE traveled to Lima, Peru, to talk to LU.CU.MA about his life, how he uses art as a way to repent, and why all his paintings involve things like corrupt politicians being beheaded by snakes.

Thelonewolf (2 months ago)
He had to suffer anguish finding a life?? What about those who didn't get a chance to live because of him? What kind of justice we are serving? Rehabilitation, who would rehabilitate the victims, the dead, by the hands of this insignificant [email protected](#.

Bro I don't get why people who done wrong will always do wrong. Or that killers can't change. Or that homeless are mental and crazy. I talked and seen homeless people and they are good people since they tell us truth and not lies. All people who done wrong can tell us the truth and tell us the real story and not have it covered up by political or governmental interference.

Dont want to be judge mental or anything but it almost even though a change man, seems as if rubbed up the wrong way would probably kill again . Asshole with people who are assholes ....I mean ? How far would that go what if I want as far as to call out his art ? ...( not that its not really great artworks ) ....im just saying . Had he changed himself enough trough his art or is there still some sence of him extremely warpt around things .
Thomas Edgar (2 months ago)
Soooo many mixed feelings with this one .
Brandein Guerrero (2 months ago)
I just think that people who rape and kill just suffer the same fate. A life for a life. I am amazed that the societies of modern time have changed to not kill murderers and other kinds of psychos, but to hold them and support them for the rest of the life.

Only wish every killer would realize what they’re doing is not only impactful in a negative way but also disastrous to themselves. They might say I was born into this life of gang and drugs but the only way it will ever stop is if they stop it themselves
