In Theo Lopez’s pictures lines are gliding over the canvases. They follow imaginary freeforms, swing in harmonic rhythm, take straight paths to suddenly change their direction. In doing so, they define forms that recall Wild Style graffiti and are inspired by Dadaism and Surrealism. Asked for further influences, Theo Lopez calls the Russian Constructivists, and the abstract American expressionism. Theo Lopez combines all these directions in works that are attributable to the contemporary art of Graffuturism. In addition to the expressive form-language, his skilful handling of light and shadow and the use of powerful colors, which lend his works a wonderful vitality, are striking.
Théo Lopez is one of the outstanding talents of the French Urban Contemporary scene. He was born in the Paris suburbs in 1989, where he still lives and works.
In 2008, he was invited by the art collection 9éme Concept, for which he realized several major projects on an international level. Since then, Theo has been working on his expression and his visual language. He has continued to evolve more and more from the object to the abstract, from the effect to the essential. The works of the still young artist were presented in a variety of exhibitions and publications. Some of his works are part of the collection of Nicolas Laugero Lasserre and are exhibited at the Art42 Urban Art Museum in Paris.
