My name is Víctor Ortiz and I work under the name of Iconblast. I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from Medellín, Colombia. My work is strongly influenced for all that I have liked along my life: skateboarding, music, the streets, good times, love, draw, have fun, movies, posters, magazines, smiles, PMA, my family, and my friends. For me the graphic design and illustration are the possibility to create and recreate imaginaries from my personal point of view and life experience. Not everything has been created in the image world, and therefore I see in every new project the possibility to create and communicate completely new and fresh ideas with a high esthetical sense always according to the needs of the clients.
