Miguel CORTEZ

I am a visual artist living in Chicago and born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and have exhibited my work extensively throughout Chicago and Mexico over the past 12 years. I studied painting at the School of the Art Institute and filmaking at Columbia college.

My style of painting has evolved and changed over the years. It began as a sort of figurative surrealist frottage with a dark use of colors. It changed to a more abstract and slowly turned more colorful yet with a very organic aged look to it. On some of the new abstract paintings you can imagine the forms being either a close up of something microscopic or an areal view of imaginary lands.
