About the Artist
Sculptors Luis Montoya and Leslie Ortiz specialize in creating monumental versions of fruit, vegetables, shells, and mollusks cast in bronze. Luis Montoya and Leslie Ortiz have formed an artistic partnership for the past 15 years. Together they explore everyday items, mostly found in nature such as plants, sea life.
Allying artistic traditions of Dutch 17th century still life, 20th century pop-up art and a delicate sense of humor, they offer us surrealistic bronzes that recreate the subject on a hyperbolized scale, meanwhile crafted with intense attention to detail, form and color.
