January 31, 2020

Felipe Ortiz, Boston Artist, Columbian Artist, Street Art, Painting

"This series of paintings is based on studies from observation drawn at every location I have traveled. Light posts can be found almost everywhere in the world, and I noticed this interesting reoccurrence everywhere I visit. From rural to urban places a light post can be found on the streets. They are energy connectors, and I wish to transmit my creative energy with every viewer connected to my art.

Colombian born Felipe Ortiz focuses on the practice of painting. Themes vary from industrial and urban landscape to abstract arrangements of nature and man made scenery. Color is a specific focus that plays a role in composition, and the way the viewer might perceive an image. Stylized and abstract colorful backgrounds balance the detail representational imagery often portrayed in his paintings. Felipe currently works and resides in the Boston area while making consistent trips to his native Colombia.
