Omar Ortiz, 1977 | Art in Detail

Mexican painter Omar Ortiz🎨 describes his work by saying, "Since I started painting I have always tried to represent things as real as I can. Sometimes I succeed and some others. I don’t but it’s a fact that it is very difficult for me to do otherwise".

I enjoy the challenge of reproducing skin tones and it’s nuances under natural light, particularly in bright conditions. I like simplicity in my pieces since I believe that excesses make us more poor rather than rich".
