About Sergio Lopez
Sergio Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco – and is an exemplary painter in a variety of mediums. His artistic knowledge ballooned when he discovered his love of oil painting and charcoal drawing. He filled sketchbook after sketchbook with observations from life as well as drawings from his imagination. The Golden Age illustrators, Bravura painters, contemporary artists, concept designers, graffiti writers, and photographers have been some of his strongest influences in his pursuit of painting. He continues to study by visiting museums and observing the Great Masters, which he strives to learn lessons of beauty from. His paintings of female nudes are unique and arresting. They have been soaring in popularity since they first began appearing in publications such as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Spectrum, Bluecanvas, and more online publications than are fit to list here. He has even been selected twice as a finalist for the Art Renewal Center’s prestigious yearly Salon. www.themainloop.com themainloop.blogspot.com www.facebook.com/SergioLopezFineArt bluecanvas.com/themainloop http://bit.ly/sergiolZatistaStore
