”Nano Lopez was born October 31, 1955 in Bogota, Columbia. He was recognized early in his life for his artistic talent when he was awarded first place in a municipal school drawing contest at the age of five. By high school, he was making serious copies of the Master’s, including Michelangelo’s sculptures and paintings…”
I’m proud to say I currently own four of his pieces, two animal sculptures (which he lovingly names “Nanimals” ) of one fox, Roxi, and a cat named Jack. I also own the sketches of the nanimals before they were sculpted.
His creation process is incredible, and you can watch it here. Each sculpture can take at least 3 months to make and are all solid bronze. When you buy a piece from him, he will make it custom for you and have it shipped to your door.
An amazing artist, who absolutely deserves more recognition than he gets.
