Enedelio Lopez Herrera was born in San Antonio Huista, Huehuetenango Guatemala. In 2003 he attended art classes in Toronto after working as a journalist in Guatemala for more than a decade. Since then, he has been painting every day for his own pleasure and to develop as an artist. He has contributed to his community through local art shows, and several of his paintings are in private collections in Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, and Cuba. He has participated twice in UpwithArt and is happy to be doing so again.
‘In my art, I develop abstractions that grow out of ideas about society today. I make use of rich colour mixtures in oil, acrylic and watercolours to bring pleasure to children, youth and adults.’
