Artist: Alex Paul Loza
Medium: Oil-based clay cast in bronze
"As a figurative narrative artist, I approach art as a powerful tool for creating positive social and cultural change," says Alex Paul Loza. "In this photo, I am sculpting with oil-based clay as the medium, but the final artwork will be cast in bronze, measuring about 45 [inches] in height. I am thrilled to offer a glimpse into my artistic process as I work on a life-size bronze sculpture of Little Debbie commissioned by McKee Foods Parks, Trails and Greenways for the upcoming Little Debbie Park in Collegedale. Through this sculpture, I aim to embody the values that Little Debbie represents, including hard work and community spirit."
The City of Collegedale's Little Debbie Park is scheduled to open in fall 2023. To see more of Loza's work, visit alexpaulloza.com.
