“I like to have my art on the street. Even if it is on a canvas exhibited in a gallery, I like more to have it on the walls, because I think it is the best support an artist can have ”, says Camilo Ortega F, an emerging Street Art artist, in whose work he links the use of your own calligraphy with color exploration.
For Camilo, better known as Cortegraff, the street has been fundamental: not only because since he was a child he has worked on it from caring for cars to juggling - but because the street is the space that allows you to do your work outdoors. , in connection and interaction with other people.
Camilo Ortega Fuentes "aka" Cortegraff
Street Art artist
My art is inspired by street calligraphy, old damaged posters, and street art, including graffiti. I use acrylic, oil painting, and markers. I like mixing classic techniques with contemporary painting. I work with Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Glagolitic, Arabic letters, and ancient runes. I love experimenting and finding new ways of expressing myself in my art.
Creating art is my way of expressing my life journey. Painting is a positive outlet that reflects my life and the world around me. I create detailed dot paintings of mandalas, animals, trees, flowers, portraits, and figures.
