The Pratt Munson Gallery is pleased to host the 2023/24 School of Art Artist-in-Residence, Felipe Lopez.

Felipe Lopez is a Colombian artist and professor living in Boston, MA, USA. He holds a BA degree in art and an MA in art education from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and an MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.

Trained as a traditional painter and draftsman, Felipe explores subjects such as the nostalgia of images and everyday life, depicting scenarios and human figures, and the structures of power around us through the images of monuments. His body of work combines traditional drawing as the main characteristic, with surfaces, and non-traditional means as a broader idea of drawing.

His work has been included in more than twenty group exhibitions in different cities around the world, for example in Boston, New York City, Mexico City, Paris, Hamburg; galleries and art fairs in Colombia such as Galería El Museo, and Barcú Art Fair. His works are part of private collections in Colombia, and the United States, and the public collection of the Instituto Municipal de Cultura y Turismo de Cajica.

Felipe has been awarded the SMFA Dean ́s Research Award recently, the Montague Travel Grant, the Hamburg Exchange Fellowship in 2022, and awards in Colombia such as Colfuturo crédito beca and Opportunity Fund grant. He has served as a painting and drawing professor for the continuing education program of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and other art schools in the country, guest speaker and lecturer for undergraduate classes for several years, as well as a teaching assistant at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
