Randy Ortiz

I first stumbled upon Randy Ortiz through his work with the previously featured Spoke Art Gallery where he paid tribute to the work of director Wes Anderson. His surrealism consist of a creative balance between simplicity, symmetry and painstaking attention to detail.

As if his incredible talent wasn’t enough, the man has what may be the most creative bio I’ve ever seen on an artists page:

“…He transformed into an adult through metamorphosis similar to most amphibians. It involved a radical rearrangement of internal organs, development of eyes and transformation from a mud-dwelling filter feeder into an efficient swimming parasite and sexual tyrannosaur. Randy is a self-taught artist and he illustrates and designs his art by attaching his mouth to a goatfish, secreting an anticoagulant into the host, and drawing with the blood and melted tissue that spills from the gelatinous orifice.”

Well played sir!
