About JC Amorrortu

Born in Lima Peru(Now resides in Austin TX, USA), during times of political and social unrest (80's), modern day renaissance man J.C. Amorrortu began developing his unique approach and style in his creative endeavors (Music, Painting, Drawing, Illustration, Printmaking & Watercolor). His art reflects an eclectic mix of traditional and modern. J.C spent decades learning to paint in the old masters style (specially the Dutch style), he wanted to make art that had meaning but would also had museum quality technique. Seeing his first Vermeer painting changed his life and inspired him to make art that would last for centuries. The quality of his craft has earned him awards, commissions from wealthy patrons and the honor to have his art in private collections around the globe. He is very prolific and thinks a true artist should be able to paint what he/she feels without fear; a sense of humor never hurts either. beauty is find everywhere. As an artist you should strive to improve and to honor change; I am always changing and learning new techniques.
