“Conditions are Subject to Change” is the name of the series of new works by Denver Artist Michael Ortiz. The works are the second installment to Michael’s latest body of work for 2013.
Michael’s use of Multi-Layering techniques with mixed media such as stencils, spray paint, and collage are a representation of how we live in a world of ever changing environments, possibilities and ways of thinking. Through layered collage and street art state of mind Michael explores ways to create new ideas and techniques by trying new things and not keeping with a general outline as to how each piece is made. With this Michael has been able to achieve different effects in each piece of art while maintaining a cohesive and responsive body of work.

“Have a Good One” is the name of the new series of artwork by Denver Artist Michael Ortiz. Michael explores the ideologies and the ephemeral nature of graffiti using the aesthetic throughout the paintings as a base layer to build from, covering up old tags with new tags. The works are all constructed on wood panels and consist of print collage, handmade stencils, spray paint, paint marker, acrylic and latex paints to build the layers. Michael works with a certain ‘create and destroy’ state of mind and the subject matter is compiled with the same mentality as he would use if he was doing the art on a street wall. The subjects in the art are bold, impactful and draped with vivid colors. These new mixed media collages have a sense of decayed graphic design and painterly technique arranged in a way to affect the viewer with provocative thought. The name ‘Have A Good One’ has a number of different meanings in society today and in this instance it refers to the impermanence of doing a piece of graffiti or really anything you do in life. The whole point in life is to make it good so, “Have A Good One”, because it will all be gone one of these days.
