“I consider myself an artist who went through various plastic languages because my work demonstrates this, but today it feels good with magical realism,” says Marco Ortolan.
Marco Ortolan is an Argentine artist whose work has gone through different languages through time, from Impressionism to Hyperrealism, to REALISM today. Having studied at the Academy of Miguel Perez Macias since 1985, the artist develops his work based on both the Italian Renaissance and French Impressionism.

Marco Ortolan remembers loving art as a child. Elementary school was his first workshop. “I suppose that my creative spirit led me to fine arts,” he says. “The sensitivity that paintings transmitted to me, but mainly drawings tempted me to star.”
Underwater marine scenes and urban landscapes
Underwater marine scenes and urban landscape are the themes Marco is dealing with at the moment.
Marco started studying with the Argentine artist Miguel Perez Macias. He was his only teacher. Then French impressionism caught him for a long time. Books in quantities, constant visits to museums, and finally the magic of the internet and its searches did the rest.
Marco considers himself an artist who went through various plastic languages, but today he classifies his style as magical realism or simply realism.
