Marco Ortolan is an Argentine painter renowned for his extensive national and international exhibitions, including showcases in Italy, Mexico, Germany, Portugal, and the United States. Embracing a belief in artistic universality, Ortolan continually explores diverse themes, asserting that "the artist must be universal" and emphasizing the interpretative nature of art devoid of specific messages. His artistic journey navigates between the realms of hyperrealism and impressionism, commencing with vibrant color drawings that lay the foundation for his pieces. Employing large strokes that progressively define shapes, Ortolan translates his vision onto wood canvases using various oil application techniques. Trained in the plastic arts at the Academy of Miguel Perez Macias since 1985, he delves into drawing and painting, drawing inspiration from the Italian Renaissance and French Impressionism, later incorporating pen techniques into his drawings. Ortolan's artistic odyssey encompasses a rich tapestry of influences and techniques, contributing to the vibrant tapestry of Argentine contemporary art.
