Felo Odriozola (Montevideo 1983-) more known as ”El Felo” is an Uruguayan digital artist and painter who lives and works in Valencia, Spain.
His uniquely-styled portraits are a visual explosion of colors and planes, fracturing recognizable features into stunning abstract art that almost appears to fly off the 2D surface of his work.
El Felo’s deliberate obfuscation of facial features is what makes his paintings so intriguing. . . you FEEL as though you should be able to peer through and see the subject behind the abstraction, but there’s always something in the way
His distinctive and personal style excels in the use of color configurations and the art of transforming geometric forms into a shape that we can feel represented.
He explores the unlimited potentiality of chromatic and tonal scales, visual planes, and volume within a two-dimensional framework.
In the past, he moved to Mexico City and lived there almost 8 years before he finally came to Spain. From profession, he is a graphic & web designer for almost 13 years working in cities like Mexico City, Montevideo, Madrid or Valencia.
