This weeks lecture got me thinking about the future of my illustrating and how this constellation option of humour within art can be incorporated into that. Since starting in September i definitely see now how humour and illustration aren’t worlds apart and how they can work together to make the other more original and exciting for people. People hadn’t previously explored one of them would now be able to.
I want to use more humour in my art because i prefer the more classical photo realistic style art which can sometimes be thought of as more boring than the modern contemporary art. By using humour hopefully i’ll be able to change peoples opinions and make my illustrations just as eye catching and impressive as todays abstract and modern art.
Omar Ortiz is a photorealist artist who’s work is so unbelievable to be a painting i can’t believe it. It’s because of artists like this i begun to illustrate, they always caught my attention with the skill and detail needed.
Omar Ortiz is an oil painter who works and lives in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. He enjoys reproducing skin tones under natural light. His hyperrealistic work evokes alluring of human body with simplicity and minimalistic style.
