Theo Lopez started his artistic path at a very young age. In 2008, his encounter with the 9th Concept Collective encouraged him to take a decisive pictorial direction. Surrounded by confirmed artists and driven by growing curiosity thanks to his numerous trips to Russia, Israel and the United States, he expanded his vision beyond his original aspirations. At the age of 34, he shared his particular universe with us through his keen sense of observation. Initially inspired by tribal and spiritual influences, Theo Lopez is now moving into the realm of abstraction. At first he created works full of patterns and optical effects but now his research is being guided by a need to return to basics, to the very essence of his approach. Much like the Russian Constructivists, European Lyrical Abstraction, American Abstract Expressionism or even his graffuturist contemporaries. He creates poetry in his work through matter, line and color. Experimentation is an integral part of the artist's creative process. The creation of a work constantly oscillates between two opposite but complementary concepts: reflection and spontaneity. His starts in a spontaneous and intuitive way, with random curved writings and gestures which he then structures with straight lines and geometric shapes. This repeated operation generates a transformation. The artist does not follow a predefined path, the painting is built in real time. Cutting, breaking, tracing, structuring, covering, adding, scratching, hiding, revealing... Theo Lopez perceives painting like a sculptor, playing with randomness and provoking accidents to attract inspiration. A hybrid poetry emanates from the metamorphosis. The different layers merge, the colors talk to each other, the lines vibrate and respond to each other, the accumulated paint acquires depth. These contrasts evoke energy flows, subconscious glimmers, the canvas is inhabited. By articulating all these apparent contradictions in this way, he succeeds in awakening secret harmonies between them, which will ultimately become the signature of his own style. Beyond being a painter, Theo Lopez is also a socially committed artist. Since the beginning of his career, he has supported associations such as Autism Without Borders, Bloom for the protection of the oceans, the "Musée en Herbe", the "Secours Populaire" and others. Since 2020, accompanied by the large American paint corporation PPG, he has participated in actions in hospitals and support homes for severely dependent people for the French “Téléthon”. This collaboration led Theo to paint at the AFM Téléthon headquarters in 2022, and in 2023 he will become the sole ambassador of the PPG Group's Chromatic brand with a color chart reflecting his own style.
