Alma Lopez

Mexican born, American, b. 1966
Alma Lopez received her BA from UC Santa Barbara (1988) and MFA from UC Irvine (1996). Her work spans many categories from serigraphs, paintings, and photo-based digital prints to public murals and videos. She is dedicated to issues of representation and social justice, and takes as her subject the daily lives, mythologies, and dreams of people of color. Through visual scholarship, she deconstructs and re-figures cultural icons, including La Virgin de Guadalupe, and allows them to exist in radically new ways. Since the 1992 Los Angeles uprisings, Lopez has been engaged in collaborative public art making that helps to bridge black and brown communities. Lopez currently lives in Los Angeles, where she helped co-found three organizations: L.A. Coyotas, Tongues, and Homegirl Productions
