Painter and sculptor, Antonio López, began his artistic training in his native land, where he took classes with the painter Antonio López Torres. It was thanks to his artistic facility, his talent and the support of his uncle that he began his studies in Madrid, at the Academia de San Fernando. In order to gain access, he attended the courses at the School of Arts and Crafts in the afternoons for a period. Preparation that served him to access the academy at the age of 14. During his student period he became friends with other artists of his generation such as Enrique Gran, Amalia Avia or Lucio Muñoz, which has come to be called the Madrid School.In 1955, after finishing his studies at the School of Fine Arts, he left for Italy , where he traveled thanks to a scholarship. After finishing his studies, in 1957, he made his solo debut in Madrid at the Ateneo, with an exhibition he had prepared in his homeland, Tomelloso. A year later, thanks to a contest held by the Rodríguez Acosta Foundation, I travel to Greece with a scholarship. After his return to Madrid in the 1960s, his presence in galleries was reiterated.Thanks to the contacts generated through his show at the Biosca Gallery, Antonio Lopez's work generated great interest in different places in Europe, the United States, China and Korea.

His work is characterized by the use of a realistic language, showing a great interest in portraiture, although it also includes themes such as landscape.
