Participants will learn basic concepts that push the boundaries of realism and range from the importance of manipulating the viewer's perception to using the selection, style and technique of reference images that are more than the sum of the parts of the final painting.

Omar Ortiz, who has more than 500,000 followers, was born in 1977 in Mexico. The style can be called minimalist-hyperrealism. His works have been exhibited in prestigious art galleries in many countries such as London, Netherlands, Greece and Taiwan. In the paintings where the human figure stands out, especially the use of the fabric and the background are very important.

The artist, who came to Istanbul for 3 full days training  taught the production of the ten basic colors of skin tone and realistic figurative painting. The participants from different countries who joined in the commen language of art  watched and practiced Ortiz's realistic painting technique in the comfort of The Marmara Pera Hotel, accompanied by delicious foods. They returned to their countries and cities with valuable information, new friendships and unforgettable memories.

Artists and art lovers of all levels are invited to the short-term workshops to add value to the inner riches and talents of the parties by bringing together art-lovers with the world-renowned artists and the artist herself in the common language of art.
