Proyecto Merkabah (Julio Ortega)
Proyecto Merkabah is a personal project created by the graphic designer and illustrator Julio Ortega. Julio is influenced by works of Mexican neo contemporary artists and illustrators such as: Raul Urias, Saner, Rootrises, among others.
“I try to recreate an artistic ideology where feelings, ideas and thoughts create a reality altered by themselves. Using elements such as sacred geometry and the philosophical discipline of alchemy, mixed with symbology and Asian cultural folklore. I am interested in how feelings, ideas and thoughts can have different realities and perspectives, as well as how they can be represented graphically and psychologically depending on the viewer.”
