Hurtado is an artist with an unmistakeable style. His paintings recreate scenes in an almost cinematographic context which are set within the 1920's and 1930's. His exquisite drawing skills and harmonious use of color are complementary to the overall sense of mystery surrounding his stylish and elegant characters and the roles they play in his paintings.
There is an implied interaction between the spectator, the paintings and the artist who encourages the viewer to use his imagination in unravelling and participating in the narrative of the work. Hurtado's painting is serious and produced in a concientious manner, where imagination and technique are in harmony resulting in a poignant statement of the timeless unchanging realities of the human condition.
