The Other Journal features art from the Latino artist Gerald Lopez, who creates images based on the Mexican sport of professional wrestling known as Lucha libre.
Gerald Lopez is a contemporary Mexican-American artist and art instructor. He received his MFA from the University of Delaware and teaches at both Del Mar College and Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, Texas. Lopez has exhibited his paintings, mixed media, and public works widely, and he actively contributes to K-Space Contemporary, an artist-run gallery in Corpus Christi.
