John Lopez’s art makes me stand back and shake my head.  Sometimes I mutter… but mostly I just sigh loudly and marvel.  I always wonder how his mind works… is it always looking for holes and what might fit in that hole?   Is his life a huge puzzle where one thing may look one way – but to him, it is a piece that can fit in any way…

Have you seen his work?

Here are a few pieces…

Do you see the guitar and violin?

Look at the detail!

IN CASE YOU AREN’T FAMILIAR, HERE IS JOHN’S BIO

Actually, there is more to say about John, but the quick bio comes from his website.  You can find John Lopez’s bio here.

I know he lives in South Dakota and I know he was influenced by his cowboy upbringing.  His website has several video showing him riding his horse and driving cattle.

He lives the life…

There are also several videos showing him welding – which were awesome!

Anyway, to learn about John, I am quoting this off of his website (linked here).

Sculptor John Lopez was born and raised on a ranch in Western South Dakota. His western and rodeo theme bronzes have been well received by the public and have sold all over the country from California to New York. For the past ten years, John has been working on The City of Presidents project in Rapid City, SD. John Adams, John F. Kennedy and John, Jr., Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt and Ulysses S. Grant are a few of the presidents John has placed on the street corners so far. The job security that this steady work provides has opened up the door for John to experiment with the style of his work and allowed him to branch out into other sculptural forms.

I wrote about John in 2011.  Here is that post.

Great shot. He must be so proud! I wonder how he thinks… Is his mind always solving puzzles? This piece goes here and that piece goes there…

MEANWHILE… HERE IS SOME NEW ART FROM JOHN.  SIGH.

Love the eyebrows!

HE HAS A COFFEE TABLE BOOK!

The only thing I wish was that it would never end!

I have no affiliation (wish I did).  I just thought it would be nice to know that you could enjoy his pieces on a limited budget!

You can purchase the book, here.
