Steve Lopes is a Sydney based painter and printmaker known for his figurative landscape. He often works en plein air, painting vignettes of a place which are used as references for large-scale studio works.
While his landscapes are often a representation of what he saw, the figures are often imagined personalities, or placed into the composition after the fact. He often depicts isolated figures to emphasise the displacement of the human figure within the world.
Steve Lopes' works have been acquired in collections such as the National Art Gallery of Australia, Parliament House Art Collection, Canberra, BHP Billiton Art Collection and the Time Warner Collection in New York.
In 2018 Steve Lopes won the Gallipoli Art Prize in Sydney.
