Domingo López Torres (1910—1937) was a Canary painter, writer, and poet. Born to a very poor family in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, he became an autodidact and convinced Marxist, playing a large role in the development of revolutionary intellectualism in the Canary Islands. He published incendiary articles in various labor publications, such as La Tarde and Gaceta del Arte. In 1930, he founded the cultural, ideological, and political journal Cartones. In 1935, he opened a bookstore-tobacconist's shop, which became a meeting place for the far left of the Canarian political and literary elite.
