Angel Manuel Lopez - The Man behind SonofaSaint

SonofaSaint art is distinctive, raw, and genuine – and that’s in no small part thanks to the distinctive, raw, genuine creativity of Angel Manuel Lopez, the genius behind the canvas.

 

A native of Brooklyn, NY, Lopez got his start as the lead singer of Biting Saints, a hardcore metal band that, in its prime, fielded major offers for touring, album distribution, and airplay. When, however, the band split up – as bands are wont to do – Lopez channeled his energy into becoming a graphic design whiz-kid.

Though Lopez is, predominantly, self-taught, his passion for his work – and his craft – is self-evident.

And, as his who’s who of clients – which range from the corporate to the creative -- demonstrates, he’s worth it.

He’s created logos for prominent politicians, restaurants, and record labels alike. He’s created promotional material for boxing promoters and businessmen. He’s designed apparel for Instagram celebrities and world-famous rock stars. He’s even created custom portraits for New York City’s most popular models.

But that’s not all.

Under the SonofaSaint moniker, Lopez has become internationally known for his so-called “Superhero Mashups,” where he imagines celebrities and “real people” alike as their favorite comic book star. Whether he’s visualizing Nick Bateman as Gambit, Drake Bell as Nightwing/Robin the Boy Wonder, or Zoe Saldana as The Punisher, Lopez’s visionary creations have earned him a devoted following and a level of celebrity of his own. His work has been featured, so far, in The New York Post, BuzzFeed, WrestleZone, and ESPN, to name a few. And that's to say nothing of his legion of adoring fans that devoutly follow his live social media broadcasts, wherein he shows -- with painstaking detail -- how he creates his unique works of art.

 

Lopez enjoys exhibiting, and selling, his work to comics convention devotees, and can make his work available in print forms of all sizes upon request.

And though he’s based in Brooklyn, NY, he’s pleased to take commissions from people all over the world, is proud to offer his services at reasonable rates, and has a variety of excellent personal and professional references to boot.

 

Distinctive. Raw. Genuine.

SonofaSaint is not an artist – he’s a revolutionary.
