Description

This week on the Top Artist Podcast, we talk with painter Omar Ortiz about his shockingly realistic paintings. Ortiz specializes in hyperrealistic female nudes with often more abstract backgrounds. Ortiz shares that he has always been interested in technique and precision. He experimented with airbrushing in university because it allowed him to achieve a texture and blurriness common to the realism he is now known for. He currently works with oil paint as he believes it the “noblest technique.”
