This is something truly special. In celebration of our new Winter Sale collection, Park West Gallery is now offering over 25 astonishing bronze sculptures by Colombian sculptor Nano Lopez.

Thanks to our long-time relationship with Lopez, Park West is able to offer more of his sculptures than any other art dealer in the world. This robust collection represents almost every kind of sculpture that Lopez currently has on the market, and we’re making them all available to you for a limited time.

You can view the full collection here and—if you see anything you’re interested in—contact our gallery consultants at (800) 521-9654 ext. 4 or sales@parkwestgallery.com.

Each sculpture is made on-demand, especially for you. It is hand-casted in bronze and hand-painted by Lopez and his team of artisans at his studio in Washington. This collection also includes new casts of previously sold-out editions of some of his most popular designs.

While the majority of Park West artists work in two-dimensional art, Lopez brings something extraordinary and extra-dimensional to the Park West family.

He once said, “Everything is a miracle, everything is amazing. The richness of the world is my inspiration.”

You can see that boundless optimism at work in every one of his sculptures. Lopez is world-famous for his iconic “Nanimals,” his series of ingenious bronze works that bring to life a menagerie of playful animal characters.

Lopez carefully crafts his “Nanimals,” imbuing them all with an astounding level of detail and personality. He creates a backstory for every animal, which develops and expands as he works on each one.

“Sometimes the piece might have the basic story from the beginning, but sometimes the story develops,” Lopez says. “I always say I have communication with the piece.”

To create his “Nanimals,” he utilizes what’s known as the “lost wax” process, an intricate procedure that sculptors have been using for thousands of years.

Lopez begins with early sketches and then sculpts with clay to bring his artistic vision to life. Next, he casts a silicone mold from his original clay sculpture and then pours wax into this mold to create a wax copy of the sculpture. It is then coated in multiple layers of liquid ceramic and placed in a kiln. The name “lost wax” is derived from how the wax melts out of the ceramic mold.

From there, Lopez forms a bronze version of his design by pouring molten bronze into the ceramic shell. Once cooled, this final sculpture is cleaned, polished, painted, and finished with a protective clear coating. Each sculpture takes several months to complete.

Because of the incredible amount of work that goes into creating each sculpture, Lopez is only able to offer a limited number of his creations each year. That makes this new Winter Sale event the perfect time to finally bring an original Nano Lopez creation into your home.

To learn more about how you can reserve one of Lopez’s made-on-demand sculptures, contact our gallery consultants at (800) 521-9654 ext. 4 or sales@parkwestgallery.com.
