Carl Lopes Biography:

Carl Lopes creates paintings that are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe to the present. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that are visually striking.

Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. His paintings appear as if they are stained glass and lit from behind.

Carl is a career artist and art educator who now devotes full time to his studio work and business. He received his Master of Fine Arts advanced degree in painting from Pratt Institute and has consistently shown his work in exhibits across New England for the past 45 years. Carl's solo exhibits have been hosted by the Cape Cod Museum of Art, Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harriet Tubman House, Colo Colo Gallery, Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Miller White Fine Arts, Higgins Gallery, and the Zion Union Heritage Museum. His work is in the permanent collection of the Cahoon Museum of American Art, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, numerous restaurants, business offices, and private homes.
