_Erik López is an architect and visual artist based in Barcelona and Mexico City. Over the past eight years, he has actively pursued a career in exhibition design, primarily collaborating at Germen Estudio, an office led by Giacomo Castagnola, where they develop museographic strategies for exhibitions.

He also represents an Office of Exhibition, Architecture, and Design Photography. The office specializes in capturing the essence of exhibitions in museums and cultural spaces, aiming to showcase the synergy between art pieces, exhibition design, and the architectural context.

In 2020, with the support of the Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo (PAC), he published his first book, Tlatelolco Ciudad Museo (Tlatelolco Museum City). In 2022, he was awarded the Fundación Jumex scholarship and the CONACYT scholarship to pursue a Master's Degree in Contemporary Design at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Barcelona, which he concluded in 2023.

_IMGN is the VJ project of Erik López. His work, self-described as Digital Expressionism, experiments with the limits of photography, video, and 3D modeling to create live-processed landscapes that address themes related to the internet, cities, and architecture. Working with digital tools, IMGN intends to exclude the technical processes involved in digital creation and focus on improvisation and intuition, mimicking the emotional and unconscious gestures that were gestated in the Abstract Expressionism painting of the 20th century.

Alongside Edgar Mondragón, an electronic music producer from Mexico City, they have created an audiovisual symbiosis that has been live-performed at cultural venues such as Centro Cultural España (CCE), Laboratorio Arte Alameda (LAA), Instituto de Investigaciones Culturales (UABC Museum), and world-renowned music festivals like MUTEK México+Japón 2020, MUTEK Montreal 2021, SXSW, NRMAL, and Hipnosis. IMGN’s work has also been selected by digital platforms such as Archdaily, Koozarch and Homeostasis Lab.
