Eddy A. López, born in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, in the midst of the Sandinista revolution, is an artist whose work amalgamates archives and memories of war into abstractions of vibrant colors, patterns, and shapes. López uses big data, averaging algorithms, and printmedia to create wide-scale collage compositions that try to find meaning in a chaotic world.
Lopez's recent solo exhibitions include Beautiful War at the Carroll Gallery in Huntington, West Virginia, and the Samek Art Museum in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania; Remixes, at the Vandiver Gallery in Anderson, South Carolina; and Composites, at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Gallery in Niceville, Florida. López’s work has also been exhibited at the the International Print Center New York, The Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, the North American Print Biennial, ArtMiami, ArtPalm Beach, among others. He is the recipient of various awards and grants and was recently selected as an Andrew Mellon Foundation Fellow. López’s work can be found in the collections of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Frost Art Museum, Zuckerman Museum of Art, Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Miami-Dade County Public Library, El Minia University, Cairo, and more.
López received an MFA in printmaking from the University of Miami, and a BFA in Painting and Printmaking as well as a BA in Art History from Florida International University. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Art at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
