Today we’d like to introduce you to Edmundo Lopez.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have created art all my life but when I moved to New York City in 1986, I became more interested in art. I studied art in New York, I obtained a bachelor from City College and MFA from Lehman college NY. I was an art professor adjunct at Boricua College in New York. More I live in Kissimmee, Florida where I teach art and produce my artworks. My artworks are based on sculpture (clay, metal, wood, paper), painting and printmaking. I am inspired by social issues such as immigration, LGBTQ, spirituality, Identity. I have exhibited my artworks in New York (west Beth art Gallery, New York Art Club winning the “Allied artist “, Bronx museum of art, teacher college NY, Orlando Museum of Art, Polasek Museum on the exhibits “Summer for Love” celebrating the 1st anniversary of the pulse tragedy in Orlando Florida. I won an award “award of distinction in the Osceola Arts juried art show (Hispanic Celebration)and courting other prizes at the Osceola County’s Fair. At this moment I have on display an outdoor sculpture in downtown Kissimmee (juried) Also, at this moment, my artworks is on display at Sobo Art Gallery Winter Garden and at City Art Orlando.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
English was my first obstacle the I have to work, go to college and produce my artworks. That was hard. During those days, I have to provide for my daughter and wife.

Please tell us more about what you do, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I get inspired by humans, birds, fish, and marine plants. I stylized the forms to convey the desired emotion (message). The themes are about relevant social issues, such as “positive Thoughts”, a sculpture that I created for the Polasek Museum of art. It consists of an assemblage of three colorful mailboxes (LGBTQ flag) where your viewer interacts with the sculpture by writing positive messages and send it to the LGBTQ community.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My wife, Arelis Garcia is my mentor advocate, supporter. I love her and I appreciate everything she does for me and my art. A lot of my creations are inspired by her.
