"My paintings are inspired by my own dreams, by music and literature."
"Hello, I'm Jorge Luis López Madero, although as an artist I use only my maternal surname. I was born in Acapulco, close to the sea amid tropical landscapes. Ever since I was a boy, I've liked to draw and my family always encouraged me to do so. I participated in my first art contests while in grade school, winning third place in the state. This motivated me to continue and, with time, I experimented with different techniques such as watercolor and graduated to acrylics. I now work in oils as well. I have never taken art classes and am self-taught, always striving to transmit my feelings through my art. I've participated in several statewide contests.
"My work doesn't permit me to dedicate as much time to my art as I'd like, but this is my greatest desire. My paintings are inspired by my own dreams, by music and literature. Perhaps I don't attempt to change the world with my art, but I do attempt to raise the consciousness of my viewers to reality, good and bad, beautiful and ugly…."
