Designing an African Hotel or Restaurant?
Just looking for a punch of color or impact, Carl Lopes is available for special commissions or just pick from a cadre of available works.
Hear what Carl Lopes has to say about his work:
My paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop.
Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.
I have been painting for over 45 years and received my MFA from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn. My work has been exhibited at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Cahoon Museum of American Art, and the Zion Union Heritage Museum. My work is in the permanent collection of the Cahoon Museum of American Art, Wicked Restaurants, Zion Union Heritage Museum, and many private collectors.
