Ivan Ortizâ€™ paintings are inspired by his travels and nostalgia for moments in time when he has witnessed true beauty. His paintings include images that suggest urban decay, weathered, and abandoned spaces that are juxtaposed with bright overlapping colours that calm the mind and give the eye visual rest.
Ivan received his fine arts degree from the Ontario College of Art and Design University. Since graduating he has focused on creating art with acrylic, found print, images and other material he assembles seamlessly and deliberately.
