Interview: Hector Lopez
Luca Curci
talks with Hector Lopez during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2021 – THE SECRET GARDEN, at Misericordia Archives.

Born into a great family of artists (dancers, writers, sculptors and performing arts among others). Since he was a child, he was already interested in a painting by teaching classes with painting and sculpture professionals, although it was in recent years that his career as an artist began to take off, exhibiting and collaborating in Spain, London, Mexico and Italy. His technique is easily recognizable by using colors, texture and material volume in his works. His work tool is the spatula in its different formats. He created his own identity through abstraction. Nature and urban landscapes are among his main sources of inspiration. His work reflected his personality and exudes spontaneity and liveliness In the sculptural part, he opted for woodwork.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Hector Lopez –
Art is the way to bring out my other self, my essence and my creative personality.

LC – What are you currently working on?
HL –
In a series of mixed techniques with very interesting rips and layers.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most? 
HL –
I have grown up full of art since I was little and since I made the leap to publicize my work in recent years and it has been increasing by moments. I think we are in a slightly more complicated stage for artists and you have to be awake in every way. What is the experience that has most influenced your work? When a large company from the United Kingdom hired me and bet on me from the beginning.

HL –
I have evolved as an artist but without losing my essence. Working hard and trying new techniques in painting and sculpture.

LC – What is your creative process like?
HL –
Capture what I see in my daily life and transform it into the abstract.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
HL –
Working layer after layer giving it a very contemporary and special image.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
HL –
The sculpture that I have presented in Venice is part of a series that you create in 2021.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
HL –
I thought that this work between the real and the abstract would have an interesting reason for this fair.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
HL –
All art platforms are important and support the art and the artist.

LC – Do you think ITSLIQUID GROUP can represent an opportunity for artists?
HL –
Art is the way to bring out my other self, my essence and my creative personality.
