About this Artist
"Light is a beautiful thing to be inside of. If I can draw people towards the light through my paintings, then I have accomplished my mission as an artist. "
Armando Adrian-Lopez, an artist graced with vision and ingenuity, is a Tarascan (Purepecha) Indian from the Mexican village of Santa Maria in Michoacan. Adrian-Lopez dreams of his creations before he gives them form in waking life. His journeys into the unconscious bring to his artwork a spectrum of imagery from angelic to nightmarish. He has earned himself a reputable name in the Southwest and his work is a testimony of his love, sincerity, and humble ingenuity.
Through his deep, earth-toned colors, spiritual themes, and soft-edged compositions, Armando Adrian-Lopez captures the attention of both modest spirits and educated art collectors. His paintings, which include his own mixture of egg tempura, are completed with a technique he has developed during the last 15 years. His works of art, combining pre-Columbian tradition and Catholic religion, occasionally consist of dark undertones. Other compositions speak of light and joy. Armando receives particular praise for the arrangement of his elements, which he acknowledges comes naturally, since he did not have formal training.
Armando Adrian-Lopez began creating in his village at the age of five. He spent many hours watching his grandfather, a master craftsman, weave baskets and dolls. He also painted murals on the walls of his home, where his mother encouraged his art. As he matured, so did his work, and at the age of twenty he set out to the USA. In 1994, he settled on a farm in northern New Mexico. Since then, Adrian-Lopez has shown at exhibitions in New Mexico and throughout the United States.
