A Little Bit About SM Lopez

As an artist, I find it really confusing to describe myself and my work. On one hand, its really easy to just state what it is that I do. I do abstract paintings, mainly in acrylics and a combo of watercolor + gouaches. In addition to that, I love "city photography" and "urban photography". I've developed a preference for taking pictures of the City, at night. I find what the eye sees after hours, is far more fascinating and curious. Daytime photos of the city demand that your eye focuses on Architecture and Engineering (which happen to be 2 fields I actually do enjoy). But the nighttime viewfinder, shows more and more layers of the City's real personality.

I was born and raised in LA. I have lived in many cities though:
Chicago, Boston, Miami. I lived in NYC for about 8 years. And before NYC, I lived in London for 3 years.
So for me - I have long since lost interest in the war of words fought to determine if NYC or LA are the greater of the 2 American behemoths. In fact, I would much rather spend a few months in Mexico City. Which, as it turns out, I have visited numerous times, spending upwards of 5-6 weeks at a time in the capital.

I had enjoyed painting since my late teens and early 20's. But for about 10 years, I didnt pick up a brush or unrolled any canvas. It was shortly after I moved to NYC, when my inner-self, needed to speak again.
Luckily, the apartment that I lived in, (which was actually in Ridgewood, Queens) had eastern exposure on the one side. And as such, my morning light was INCREDIBLE!!! Just the most fluid, 
buttery morning sunlight you could ever wish for as an artist. The equivalent of morning "Golden Hour".

Soon, I had ordered a world of new supplies and canvas sizes and pigments and paints. My brain was in overdrive, putting ponderings and emotion and love and uncertainties onto canvas.

Its been a really strange but totally enlightening road, to get to this current state of me. 
Maybe we'll bump into each other somewhere in LA or Mexico City......
