"I’ve been exploring the monarch butterfly pattern on my portraits and while I enjoyed that aspect I wanted to understand how I could use it in other situations. I first drew the figure in my sketchbook while looking at the muse. I liked the flow of the drawing and pondered how I could use it in a painting. A few days later I came up with the idea while listening to Jamiroquai’s, Butterfly. This was the first time I added distress to the derrière.
The under painting was applied by brush with coarse textures executed by palette knife. Under painting has been a big focal point for me. It’s helped me understand how to trap light and distinguish shadows with greater dexterity. A new door has opened which makes me feel like I’m learning all over again." - Steven Lopez
This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Steven Lopez and 1xRUN.
Born in Los Angeles, Lopez was heavily influenced by hip hop culture and graffiti art. He is a painter who has emerged from the graffiti subculture and academic influence. While attending the University of Oregon Lopez studied under the guidance of master sculptor, Dora Natella and design theorist, Leon Johnson. Lopez absorbed attention to form associated with Natella's sculptures, while refining his own visual and conceptual vocabulary that emerged through Johnson's critique on visual continuity.
In 2000, Lopez Received his B.A. in Fine Art. His work can be found within a myriad of corporate and private art collections both in the United States and abroad. He currently lives and works in the City of Los Angeles.
Lopez seeks to discover the possibilities of utilizing wildlife as a stage for human interpretation. His works ask viewers to consider the collaborative potential inherent in creating hybrid species, focusing particular attention on the female form. It represents Lopez’s artistic endeavor to challenge himself to present different manifestations upon a central theme. In so doing, these works reflect the artist’s contextual engagement with his protagonists. Using a variety of dynamic colors, Lopez explores his own calm protective nature, as well as his volatile relationships with his subjects, producing pieces that are powerfully vibrant and, at the same time, complimentary. The result is a series of works that articulate the very essence of the creative process.
