Gorgeous Hyper-Realistic Nude Paintings


Mexico-based artist Omar Ortiz stuns us with his new hyper-realistic paintings. Just when we thought they couldn’t get any more beautiful, his oil paintings become even more sensual and provocative, giving us a renewed appreciation for the gorgeous female form.

Recently, Ortiz gave an interview to Sunrise Artists where he talked about his love of oil on canvas (saying it’s “the noblest way of painting”) as well as how the Internet has helped shaped his career (“The computer is a global and immediate way of communication, and using a blog to publish/post my work has given me many more advantages than disadvantages. I have been able to open doors around the world, and all of the contacts that I have gotten have been thanks to my work published on the Internet.”)

My favorite quote was when he was asked about his current series, which we were happy to hear he’s not stopping anytime soon. “For now, I am not planning on changing my central theme: Female nude. I could paint the human figure for all my life and still feel that there are more things to explore. The female nude is one of the most beautiful things in the world; it is something I love to do.”

Referred to as a Blessings Box, the pop-up repository invites members of the community to “take a blessing when you need one, leave [a] blessing when you can.
