Antonio Lopez Garcia @ MFA
Antonio Lopez Garcia currently has a show at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts..which I was lucky enough to catch last weekend. He is a Spanish artist who has been called a master of hyper realism, magic realism, Spanish realism...let's just say he's realistic. He focuses his attention on familiar and humble subjects, which he lovingly captures with a sensitive hand. (Figures, domestic scenes, cityscapes, etc.) His mastery of light makes his scenes glow, and you can see the influence of fellow Spanish painter Velazquez. I dig him.
Here are a few of his pieces...including a picture of Bonnie and I with one of his giant baby heads!
