WELCOME TO MY GALLERY

Born in Barcelona, I moved to San Diego in 2003 and fell in love with the city.

Mechanical Engineer by profession, surfer and artist by vocation.

Enjoy the tour and don't forget to leave your comments...good or bad.

Thanks

My next painting

This will be an ongoing post to illustrate the process of creating my next painting.

From the idea to the final painting. Ideally this could be an interactive process where I would get comments and suggestions from followers, along the creation process, which will influence the final output. And who knows, this could evolve in a new form of interactive art.

Perhaps this could become a good idea after all, engaging people to participate in the creation process of my paintings. Some could think that this goes against the rules of inspiration and the freedom to create a real unique piece, but I say this is a good way to merge inspiration with technology and create something truly unique from a collective interaction.

I get to choose the idea, usually inspired by a picture. In this case I feel like doing another abstract surf snapshot which I will then tweak and distort into a preliminary sketch, becoming the start point for others to interact through comments and suggestions.

First picture and sketch will be on, this weekend.

Thanks

Hey Ori -- I am very impressed! Excellent work. I did not know that Wave Loch was graced with a man of such artistic talent.

Your Boss.

Ori,
Observant el teu art em venen molts records de quan tot el que has fet aquests últims anys només eren "somnis" en el teu cap.....
No tinc paraules per dir-te el que he sentit veient els teus quadres i sobretot veient aquells somnis fets realitat.
Potser el que més m'ha emocionat és veure a l'Ori que jo conec a través de totes i cadascuna d'aquestes obres d'art.
Moltes felicitats i no et paris....al teu camí no li veig limits !!!!
