Marco Ortolan

Editor's note

The work of Argentinian painter Marco Ortolan oscillates between hyper-realism and impressionism, while displaying a clear link to the artistic heritage of the Italian Renaissance. Composition and light play a defining role in his pieces, which always start out as color drawings, before he translates the figures into broad yet precise brushstrokes to give shape to the final refined artwork.''Our role as a artists is to awaken the spirit and sensitivity of the viewer as art is linked to the spirit.''
