Fantasy paintings by Ricardo Fernandez Ortega

There's a magical quality to the work of Ricardo Fernandez Ortega. An artist from Mexico, his paintings are a mix of contemporary and surrealism that that seem to channel baroque style, following proudly in the footsteps of Bosch or Velazquez. Rich with dark hues and expert interpretation of light, movement, gesture, and emotion – his modern work reflects an appreciation of history both in technique and context, while giving a respectful nod to the art that has existed for hundreds of years.
