Javier Ortas | Artist Profile Photo
Javier Ortas
Arges, Toledo
Artist Javier Ortas presents a playful and romantic view of the world in his signature geometric style. Javier paints entirely from his imagination, creating whimsical scenes from daydreams and encounters on world travels. As a child growing up in Madrid, he took private lessons, learning to draw and work with oil paint, acrylics, and watercolor. Later, living in California, Javier pushed himself to perfect his technique of drawing with pen, ink, and colored pencils, producing thousands of drawings. Today, he resides in Madrid where he grew up and feels the most inspiration. "When painting I use my imagination," he says. "I do my best to include what's personally on my mind to motivate my creative process." Javier likes to escape the noise of the busy city and spend time in nature. His artwork has been exhibited at galleries around the world, including in Spain, France, Holland and Italy.

Artist Statement

I create pictures without models, only from my imagination. I work on my own in front of empty paper without external reference, only with my own artistic impulse and inspiration. I invent and create scenes, characters and elements from my inner world. The result is art with a unique style, defined, genuine and different.

I was born in Madrid, where I currently live. For many years, I lived in Los Angeles, California and in the capital of Mexico. In spite of my urban conditioning, I am passionate about nature and value the tranquility and coexistence of towns and small cities.

This passion for the essential and pure, both in nature and in my vision of human beings, is perceived in my works and gives them a universal sense. My themes are diverse and dynamic; I do not allow myself to be limited, and although everything can happen in my compositions, I usually choose the beautiful to rebel against the prevailing chaos today.
