ARTIST REVIEW

Perfil Photo Óscar López.jpg

Lopez's artworks, which he calls "Pure Abstraction" (The color flight), its dynamic forms and the transparency of color, remind the flight of starlings (small birds given in Europe), whose movements make them spinning, descending and flying, forming a changing cloud in the air and embark on their spectacular acrobatics and in the transparency of color to harmonious and cadenced movements of the Northern Lights with the appearance in the sky of spots and luminous columns of various tonalities on polar nights.
