Sergio Lopez, born in 1983, is a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco - and is an exemplary painter in a variety
of mediums. His artistic knowledge ballooned when he discovered his love of oil painting and charcoal drawing.
He filled sketchbook after sketchbook with observations from life as well as drawings from his imagination.

The Golden Age illustrators, Bravura painters, contemporary artists, concept designers, graffiti writers, and photographers
have been some of his strongest influences in his pursuit of painting.
He continues to study by visiting museums and observing the Great Masters, which he strives
to learn lessons of beauty from.

Sergio continues to work in a variety of mediums and styles. From oil and gouache landscapes in and out of the studio to
nude gesture studies in newsprint, he enjoys it all. Sergio especially enjoys discovering new vistas, setting up his easel,
and creating a piece on the spot.

He believes there is no better way to discover the truth and essence of a scene than by standing before it and studying it
carefully. Sergio is a native of Sonoma County. He finds the area ever-inspiring, and never ceases to find a new gorgeous
area no matter how often he explores.

Since he began participating in plein air events in 2010, Sergio has won multiple awards, including Epperson Gallery’s
Valona Paint Out best of show award two years in a row, 3 awards in the 2010 Paint San Clemente Festival and
Honorable Mention in the Alameda Plein Air event two years in a row.

He uses the knowledge gained from painting outdoors in his studio paintings.
