Featured Artist: Antonio Lopez

Add your thoughts here… (optional)

featuredspaceHi!
Here we are at Monday again!!!

Today’s featured artist is pretty rad. It seems that in the the late 60’s and well into the 70’s Antonio Lopez was THE fashion illustrator.  Not only did he draw wonderfully colourful and evocative illustrations for big time magazines such as Warhol’s Interview, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and The New York Times, he also discovered models Grace Jones and Tina Chow. Apparently he KNEW a beautiful face when he saw it!! Lopez was born in Peurto Rico and then moved to New York with his family at a young age. He attended an art high school and then went off to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Here are some examples of his wonderful work below!
