Artists I Like: Emilio Ortiz
Some of his works have been up for auction but not a lot of info is available about the artist. Here is one I found for sale online –
I did find however the following excerpt on wikipedia where he is included in a list of artists in a movement called –
Nueva Presencia (“new presence”) was an artist group founded by artists Arnold Belkin and Fancisco Icaza in the early 1960s. In response to WWII atrocities such as the Holocaust and the atomic bomb, the artists of Nueva Presencia shared an anti-aesthetic rejection of contemporary trends in art and a belief that the artist had a social responsibility. Their beliefs were outlined in the Nueva Presencia manifesto published in the first issue of the poster review of the same name. “No one, especially the artist, has the right to be indifferent to the social order.” Members of the group included Francisco Corzas (b. 1936), Emilio Ortiz (b. 1936), Leonel G6ngora (b.1933), Artemio Sepúlveda (b. 1936), and Jose Munoz, Francisco Corzas, and photographer Ignacio “Nacho” López.
