Antonio Lopez Vega came to San Miguel in 1972 to study at the Instituto Allende, where Stirling Dickinson and James Pinto influenced him greatly. Later he traveled to
Chichén Itzá to work on a project of INAH from 1981 to 1983, where he developed an enormous interest in the pre-Hispanic world. In 1985 he was awarded the National Prize of the National Salon, Painting Division in the National Auditorium in Mexico City.
Among many other exhibitions, in 1985 he showed in a collective exhibition, “Espacio Violento” (curated by Ruben Bautista Guardia) in the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City. In 1986 his work was included in the exhibition, “Confrontatio 86” at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. López taught painting at Centro Cultural El Nigromante de Bellas Artes from 1985 to 2000.
In 2003, with Siobhan Bryne, he started a program called “Estudiarte” to give free art classes to talented children at the Instituto Allende, thanks to its director, Rodolfo Fernandez Martinez Harris who made the space available and added his support and collaboration to the program. López continues his artistic work in Ajijic, Jalisco and now shows some of his work at the Provecho restaurant, where it will remain for a month. Don’t miss this exhibition by a very talented and original Mexican artist.
