About the Book
This is Seattle, Contemporary Artist, Xavier Lopez' first survey book, starting with his steel work in the nineties on to his performance art of the present. Xavier Lopez is a Latino, conceptual artist, who received his MFA from the University of California, Davis, where he wrote the theoretical/artistic thesis the "Soft Cyborg." A Post-Pop Surrealist, he is part of a young group of artists who are seeking to move beyond contemporary ideas of race, gender and "Pop," mixing sculpture, performance, theory and painting to create something enticingly new. He has shown artwork on both coasts as well as in Germany and France, he has come to be known for his own brand of “pop surrealist” painting and post-pop sculpture, especially his "sheet ghost" installations, flower Rorschachs and tin foil mountains.
