Worldwide collected graffiti Cubist artist Nico Amortegui paints with unapologetic color and boldness. Amortegui’s expressive style incorporates many hidden layers of color and texture that make the largest statement when viewed in person. He begins each of his figurative artworks as an abstract expression of colors. Once his background is complete, a figure appears to him in the abstraction. He then begins transforming his artwork’s image with the “left-eye” of his painted figure first. This eye leads the rest of his composition as he adds and conceals many additional layers.
