Carlo Polidoro Lopez - VisualeeeZism Arte Movement

Carlo Polidoro López was born in Canada and during his childhood raised in Ecuador. He is based in Montreal Quebec. His works reflect the aesthetics of the streets of Ecuador and Canada, his home countries.  They relate personal stories, memories, and narratives of everyday life, and in a bigger way, bring the street experience of South American society to North America. From the mark-making, use of bold colors, and text-based messages, he uses an instinctual process to allow this visual description to take life. López BFA fine arts studies at Concordia University. His works are in private collections in Montreal, New York, and Ecuador.

Carlo Polidoro Lopez works on many works at the same time, usually on the ground, recording time through an accidental and controlled process. Creating in this process allows for spontaneous, energetic expression while still controlling and molding the works to the desired results. He feeds off the marks -from the found material- created by accident and follows its energy and visual conversation, adding his personal stamp.

His body of work is formed in the interest of materials and exploration of energy translating onto his work.

 

His works are created from found objects and expressed from the process of materiality. The display of the works acts as one living organism, even though they are naturally individual pieces because of the living energy they portray. The pieces also give an effect of the streets and everyday life in Ecuador and in a bigger way, the South American societies from the marks, colors, and messages added instinctually. Working through instinct, allows that visual description to take life.

He finds the beauty in creating Ruins of those past memories, and new experiences and filter what he experiences from his surroundings.  These fragments still retain something of their origins and when placed together in new juxtapositions and narratives, the fragments of ruin become reconstituted with life.

 

He also has a light touch in the way he accepts the ruin as it is and celebrates it.  He changes and adds the found items/materials in his compositions and pieces along with fragmented texts and drawing/painting elements on some works hinting at what each ruin he creates represents. Lopez Creates art as a celebration of life and about finding the positive even in the most difficult situations. His works are all about the celebration of his memories and life experiences.
