Artist in the Renaissance: Amanda Lopez

For all of you who missed it, just like I did, here's a video from Miss Amanda Lopez's first solo show "Cali Love" at Upper Playground in Sacramento CA.

Amanda's imagery stimulate the imagination. The project itself is a collaboration between homies, Amanda Lopez, makeup artist JENNI TAY and hair stylist JUSTINA DOWNS. The team worked together to create a body of art, that is not only visually appeasing, but, it makes you think, as they take you on a journey of the somberness of Dia de los Muertos icons and the liveliness of the subjects being photographed.

I can't wait to see what she has in store next. 2010, this is just the beginning.

She also has a limited edition shirt that were made for the show. Available at Upper Playground Sac. or on her blog site, or just email her at:
