tattoo artist

and illustrator

Chris Orta

is fresh off the heels

of his joint art exhibit

City of Flowers:

A Glimpse Into

a Forgotten Place.

With plenty of surreal

and magical prints,

as well as multiple tattoos

on my roommate's arm,

I felt it necessary

to add Chris Orta

to the Ongoing Art Gallery.

He first assisted

with Beach Jesus artwork,

and I've been following

ever since.

While he has plenty

on his calendar

with prints and tattoos,

it would be great to see

a graphic novel

or a zine down the road

from Chris Orta.

It's something that

the whole world needs.
