Enrique Ortiz Mejia

Enrique Ortiz Mejia studied art, engraving and sculpture from age 11 and started his self-taught professional career at age 20. Industrial iron is an essential part of his work, starting off as an abstract or geometrical creation, transformed through time and unique techniques into magnificent figurative works. Born in Mexico City in 1973, Mejia says, “I believe I’m in love with the material, because I compare it with dreams, dreams must be strong and indestructible such as iron, but at the same time they should be malleable, to transform them into reality”. Okapi World Art Gallery is carrying his most popular Limted edition works of art in Dubai, UAE.
