Adalberto Ortiz has been doing art all his life. He was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in New York City where he attended the City University of New York (BFA) and New York University (MA). He has done theatrical and commercial set design as well as graphic design, and believes that this is reflected in some of his paintings. He is primarily interested in line, geometric shapes, and surface textures often arranged in simple formal compositions. His work sometimes depicts images that consist of flat abstract shapes in representational environments. He likes to play with flat surface shapes that imply depth and distance through line. His work will sometimes reveal different styles in one painting smooth gradations, loose brush strokes, and realistic areas. His paintings have been purchased by collectors in New Zealand, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Canada and the United States.
