About the Artwork:
“Mimesis is a Greek term that gives rise to the word “mimicry”, which is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating phenomena of nature, sometimes even unrealistic. Humanity in one form or another replicates the wonders of the universe over and over again and has sought to incorporate them into its world by leaving a thin line between reality and fiction, seeking to capture the brightest colours of the natural world, the most unimaginable forms and even behaviours that are alien to its nature.” – Christian Orrillo
About the Artist:
Christian Orrillo, better known as Krizpi, is a self-taught, contemporary artist. He was born in Cajamarca, Peru, a city that is home to a lot of mysticism and history of this country.
Orrillo’s work expresses many personal concepts related with his own fantasy world, where the present, the past and the future coexist. Based in Santiago, Chile, Christian developed his style taking ingredients from many sources, specially the anime and manga culture. His paintings shows beautiful and enigmatic characters, who tries to teleport the viewer to their own universe seducing their eyes. The sea and the creatures from the deep ocean are present in his works, where he can find an infinite variety of colors, contrasts, shapes and textures, organic details that he has tried to emulate on his paintings.
The future of humanity, the mystery of life and the interaction of multiverses are constant topics in his digital paintings which are embellished by an iridiscent color palette. Christian is still exploring his own inner world through his art, his fears and obsessions, at the same time as the gate of his technicolor universe is opening.
