The beauty of working with mixed media is the unlimited amount of possibilities an artist can come up with: the ideas really, are endless. Although some may say it is getting harder to create an original piece of art (you know, the old “everything has been done before” mantra) everything in actuality has a derivative. Taking advantage of this happy situation, Oriol Angrill Jorda uses nature and the human form for the inspiration in his collection titled “Blendscapes”. He takes two images, one a landscape and the other a portrait, and then melds them together creating an image which reminds us that we are at once individual and of the world.

At the age of 12, Jorda first started drawing. At this young age he would study the light that would shine through the window casting shadows on his classmate’s faces, it was then when he developed an appreciation for light, for shading, and for the many colors he would later experiment with. He studied illustration in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, where he grew up, and later attended Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and The Art Academy in London. See more of his work on his website.
