Felipe Ortiz is a Colombian-American artist based in Boston, MA.
"My paintings and murals are a unique fusion of artistic themes, from representational views of urban scenery to my “Explosive Nature” series. My multicultural upbringing and travels between my native Colombia and United States has helped me gain a wider perspective in my artistic interests. From Colombia’s vibrant culture, colors, sounds and dense natural scenery, to the States’ vast landscape and fast-paced urban environments, there are multiple elements I can pick from each location and merge into the pictorial and self-idealistic vision I'd like to represent."
He is the co-creator of Fresco exchange, a team of muralists, designers, makers, organizers and community engagers who promote and connect artists internationally. Their core mission is to share ideas between creative economies and exchange best practices in the arts. Through the cultural experiences Fresco creates, they encourage artistic leaders across nations to make progress overcoming the challenges to creative success in their communities.
