"This sketch was the beginning of a studio painting that was part of my solo show at Gauntlet Gallery this year. I feel this piece culminates my exercises in lighting and texture. The elephant was really fun to work with. Especially when I embellished him with Quetzal type feathers. That's why this painting has emotional attachment to me. It combines a story of adversity along with my penchant to push my artistic boundaries.

I've had a few scrapes and bruises over the years to help with the idea. It started out as a conversation with myself that I had over and over again. This helped me understand the possibilities of that conversation and how to relay it visually. If I showed you the first sketch you'd laugh if you didn't know what the final draft looked like. But that's how it started. drawing and redrawing a many times over until it felt right." - Steven Lopez

This piece of original artwork is signed by Steven Lopez and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.

ABOUT Steven Lopez:
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.
