NANO LOPEZ BIO | BACK TO NANO LOPEZ COLLECTION
Nano Lopez is an artist gifted with the rare ability to see the world as a child sees it, with exploration, wonder, and creativity. He is deeply fascinated by the sometimes troubling mysteries of life and its inherent struggles. In his artistic process, Nano integrates organic textures and synthetic, human-made objects into his bronzes to create pieces of art that reflect the same depth and richness he sees in the world around him.
Although colorful and whimsical, Nano's work is anything but child's play and invites careful, sustained viewing. The rich and intricate textures and bright colors are subtly evocative of his native Colombia and other Latin art, but his depth of understanding and free associations transcend culture and time. They describe a world beyond the borders of ordinary maps, a world in which an unfettered imagination allows nature, science, folklore, and modern industrialism to exist seamlessly together.
Nano’s work invites us to look at the world more carefully. It draws us in to discover for ourselves the rich inter-connections of life. Through Nano’s artistry, we are reminded that the miracle of life exists at all levels, from the patterns on a leaf to the profound mysteries of the universe.
