Nico Amortegui is a talented Cuban graffiti artist whose large original artworks on canvas have been exhibited worldwide. Amortegui’s expressive cubist paintings incorporate numerous layers of stark contrasts and bold color that result in a vibrant and textured composition. In a bid to increase the depth of his paintings Amortegui uses an abstract expression of colors as the background of his portraits and still lifes. By adding a solid color to cover most of the initial layers he emphasizes the focal point onto the central figure.

This 50-inch high and 49-inch wide original painting on canvas is stretched, wired, and ready to hang. The background of this artwork is a very dark charcoal gray. This painting is signed on the front by the artist. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by Artplex Gallery Los Angeles is included with this original artwork.

Nico Amortegui was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. He has lived and worked in the United States since the late 1990s. His current artistic focus includes large-scale paintings on canvas.

Nico Amortegui

Nico Amortegui

Nico Amortegui is a renowned Graffiti Cubist artist known for his use of unapologetic color and boldness. His expressive style incorporates hidden layers of color and texture, which make a striking statement when viewed in person. Amortegui's artwork is rooted in his personal experience of immigrating to the United States as a teenager and his family's artisanal background. This cultural fusion has molded the themes of his artworks, reflecting his unique perspective on life.

Each of Amortegui's figurative artworks begins as an abstract expression of colors, with the figure appearing to him in the abstraction once the background is complete. He then transforms the artwork's image with the "left-eye" of his painted figure, leading the rest of his composition with many additional layers of colors and textures.

As an accomplished artist, Amortegui's collections and exhibitions have been displayed in galleries and museums throughout the United States. His unique blend of graffiti and cubism styles, infused with a vibrant Latin American perspective, has earned him recognition as an influential figure in the contemporary art world.
