born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, López is proud to be working in the long tradition of New Mexico santero artists. My work comes out of my faith. I am a firm believer that you can still use traditional methods to create contemporary work. Though the majority of my work is of Saints you do not have to be of any particular religion to appreciate them as art.  Equally important to Lopez is his need to transcend the bounds of the traditional santero, and use his art as a medium for expressing the full range of his culture and the world around him. Lopez has exhibited in numerous shows throughout the Southwest and his work is in Many prominent collections throughout the country. He is represented by Manitou Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, San Angel Gallery in San Antonio, TX.

I try to capture with intentional ethical sensitivity and undaunted heart-felt commentary of modern religious, secular and political issues with humor and a breath of fresh air.” — Arthur López
