About Eddy Lopez

Eddy A. López, born in Matagalpa, Nicaragua in the midst of the Sandinista revolution, is an artist whose work amalgamates archives and memories of war into abstractions of vibrant colors, patterns, and shapes. López uses big data, averaging algorithms, and printmedia to create wide-scale collage compositions that try to find meaning in a chaotic world.

López’s work has been exhibited at the the International Print Center New York, The Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, the Janet Turner Print Museum, the North American Print Biennial, ArtMiami, ArtPalm Beach, among others. His recent solo exhibitions include Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow at the Haas Gallery in Bloomsburg, PA; Beautiful War at the Carroll Gallery in Huntington, WV, and the Samek Art Museum in Lewisburg, PA; and Remixes, at the Vandiver Gallery in Anderson, SC. He is the recipient of various awards and grants including an Andrew Mellon Foundation Fellow. López’s work can be found in the collections of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Frost Art Museum, Zuckerman Museum of Art, Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Miami-Dade County Public Library, El Minia University, Cairo, and more.

López received an MFA in printmaking from the University of Miami, and a BFA in Painting and Printmaking as well as a BA in Art History from Florida International University.
