About this Artist
"My life is not separate from my art; my life is and has always been art. I have an unshakable belief in La Unidad—the unity of all things. I believe we are all connected to everything and everyone. "
Armando Adrian-Lopez sees himself as a spiritual storyteller. Narrative and symbolic elements allow him to tell stories in which he is not the sole interpreter—the viewer is also an interpreter. His imagery is intentionally accessible and universal by way of archetypes that are open and flexible enough to allow for many interpretations. His use of visual, symbolic language expresses his intent to engage the viewer in a dialogue. This unspoken dialogue creates a sense of intimacy and the space to dream, imagine, and contemplate. That, to Adrian-Lopez, is freedom.
Armando Adrian-Lopez creates his paintings using his own mixture of egg tempera and a technique he has developed during the last 15 years. His artwork combines imagery from pre-Columbian traditions and Catholic religion, sometimes with dark undertones, and other times, full of light and joy.
Adrian-Lopez is, for all intents and purposes, self-taught. Originally from Mexico, he now resides on a farm in northern New Mexico. He has shown his work at exhibitions across the United States. His work is also part of the permanent collection of MOLAA, the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
