Cesar E. Lopez (B. 1991, Guatemala; Kansas City - based) uses geographic language such as flags, maps and globes to make visual and culturally significant works. Merging formal elements of painting and personal history. Cesar’s work explores the 3rd space through showcasing fictitious flags and manipulating them into personal narratives. His sampling of geographic symbols indicates meaning while retaining abstract form, which touches on the duality of his practice and identity.
