Richard D Lopez is New Jersey based Illustrator, Animator and Multimedia creator.
He studied illustration at Parsons School of Design where he first began experimenting with ripping, pasting, and layering colored masking tape.
Richards work embodies many personalities through a variety of mixed mediums. Where most pieces can be brightly cheerful and lighthearted, they can also be dark, intimate and deeply reflective. Growing up in a culturally traditional and religious background has inspired work that deals with spirituality, identity, culture and heritage.
