Gustavo Ortiz draws his influences from the colonial art and native indigenous artistic practices of his Argentinian heritage. Myths and legends provide the inspiration for his subject matter and his colour and composition evoke the vibrant textiles.

Ortiz uses collage and mixed media to create his charming, whimsical and beautifully executed pieces which each take on a life and a story of their own. Often produced in series his work touchingly narrates the human condition.

Ortiz has exhibited widely throughout Argentina, Paris and London and has a huge following from all who fall in love with his work.
