Antonio

Sorry ladies, not Antonio Banderas.  Antonio Lopez Garcia.  One of my idols, and favorite living painters.  I’m not a big fan of “photo realism”, after all I think if you want a painting to look just like a photo, be a photographer.  But I do like realism, and Senor Lopez follows a long line of Spanish realist, while adding a touch of his taste.  His work has it’s own character, which I believe is the most essential of all arts, to take a life of their own.  Although his work is realistic, he keeps a rough, raw approach, taking time to do it right, alot of time, one painting took him seven years to complete.

Here is some of the work of Antonio Lopez Garcia….
