Rising Stars: Meet Alex Lopez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Lopez.

Hi Alex, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I have always felt like art was a part of me, I started really getting into drawing when I was in middle school and I started painting in high school, throughout the years I was always off and on with art but I always found my way back to it, eventually I realized that this is what I wanted to do with my life, just create and surround myself with art.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t always been a smooth road mainly because I can sometimes let my anxiety and depression get the best of me and I find myself judging my art too hard, procrastinating on starting/finishing a project, doubting my talent and just being my own worst critic, it’s something I always have to work on.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I create, I wouldn’t say I specifically specialize in one certain type of medium because I think I’m known for doing a lot of different types of art, I draw, I paint with acrylic, spray paint, paint markers, oils, I do tattoos, make jewelry, digital art, which I have made some of them into stickers, and even collages. I’m proud of each piece that I do, each one gets a piece of my energy. I would say the fact that I don’t really have a style I’m always switching up what I’m doing next.

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
That it takes a lot of me to put myself and my work out there.
