Gabriel Ortega

Colombian artist Gabriel Ortega was born in Medellín in 1969, influenced by the culture of comics and art, and began his studies at the school of fine arts in Medellín. From where he left years later to Valencia, Spain where he completed his studies in Fine Arts. Ortega’s artistic production is the result of his constant research and exploration of the character of “Les Aventures de Tintin et Milou”, one of the most influential European comics of the 20th century, created by the Belgian author Georges Remi, better known as Hergé.

His research has allowed him to explore the relationship between the image of Tintin as an icon, space, architecture, geography and the contemporary world, thus exposing the unalterable, fair and adventurous character of this ubiquitous character in the classical literature of the 1930s. and seventy.

Ortega argues: “I really paint Tintin because I grew up with him, reading his comics at night and for me this character became like a hero who does not have those super powers, because his powers are other than perseverance, moral values and constancy … Tintin is the child that each one of us carries inside … “

From 1996 to today, Ortega has had more than forty exhibitions in Europe, Asia, South America and North America, such as the Hall of Frescoes of Le Sibille di Raffaello in the Chiostro del Bramante, Forever, Vecchiato Art Galleries in Padova, Italy; Intelligent Building at EEPP in Medellín; Guest artist, XXI International Comic Exhibition in Barcelona, Spain; and countless times in art galleries located between Bogotá and Barranquilla.
