Artist Randy Ortiz has a talent for capturing a narrative in his illustrations. Surreal stories seem to play out in each singular piece he creates. His newest work pictured in these first five images are part of a current group exhibit at Brooklyn’s Bottleneck Gallery. For them Ortiz makes use of an especially colorful palette to highlight the unfolding drama of each scene. However, spanning his newer and older work is a special attention to detail. Precise lines and a nod to classical compositions make Ortiz’ work particularly engrossing.
