"My place of birth is known mostly for being one of the poorest countries in the Americas. Unable to detach myself from that history I use it as a driving force to work harder, and if through that I can bring inspiration to anyone who wants to better themselves, then I feel my art accomplished its mission."

BIOGRAPHY

Artists Ariel Ortega
Artists Ariel Ortega

If Passion and Determination met at an art exhibition and hit it off they would give birth to an Artist by the name of Ariel Ortega. Born in Nicaragua and raised in Miami, Ortega was very fortunate in having a better life in the United States. Brought up by immigrant parents working factory jobs to make ends meet, Ortega found himself needing to help with the bills and started working at a very early age. Unable to pay for an art degree, but having a deep passion for art, Ortega pursued a career in art despite his lack of educational training. Even still he ventured into starting a business without any business background. Taking a leap of faith with the hopes of flying, he built wings in mid air, and so began his artistic career. Painting murals and creating artistic faux designs, he learned the colors of the palette, different mediums, and different techniques of painting. Though it's been a rough 10 years full of ups and downs for the young entrepreneur, passion and determination once again prevailed. His reputation has opened doors for him to work on projects with some of the most renounced celebrity's and Designers in Miami. These days Ortega has shifted his work from contracts to expressions of art on MDF boards. Through his unique formula of mixed medias, he shines light on subjects related to immorality, injustice and self worth often inspired by Biblical context. Other pieces of his work simply bring a positive energy to the ambient. "My place of birth is known mostly for being one of the poorest countries in the Americas. Unable to detach myself from that history I use it as a driving force to work harder, and if through that I can bring inspiration to anyone who wants to better themselves, then I feel my art accomplished its mission." If you want a great underdog success story keep your eye on Ariel Ortega, and keep your heart open to the messages portrayed through his brush strokes.
