Yube Ortiz: Color Y Forma


In "Color Y Forma" we find paintings that are a study in the themes of art and nature.  Yube Ortiz is influenced by the works of the Aztec, Mixtec, Mayan and other Pre-Hispanic cultures. He uses the symbols of the elements of nature in an explosion of color and form.  "The artist fills his paintings with contemporary visual experiences: there is war, destruction, despair, deception, but there is also enthusiasm and amazement about life." (Paul Vaussane)

Yube Ortiz was born and raised in Mexico City.  He has studied painting, sculpture, lithography and drawing in Mexico City and Paris, France. His work has been widely exhibited in Mexico, France and Switzerland.  This will be his first exhibition in NYC.
