About the artist.
My name is Roly D. Orihuela. I am a self-taught visual artist, born and raised in Miami, Florida.
My original fine art paintings and illustrations are comprised of modern abstract imagery, with subjects primarily focused on animals, ocean life and nature in general, with styles ranging from realistic artwork to abstract pieces and 3-D art with a textured surface. My medium of choice is acrylic paint on canvas, going very water-heavy on the ratio and adding more paint to the mix as the layers progress.
Since I am also a Commission Artist, many of the custom paintings I am hired to work on allow me exercise my skill set in different mediums and substrates, which I find very satisfying as an artist. I’ve enjoyed discovering the Adobe Masters Collection a few years back in unison with the Wacom tablet and digital pen for graphic and web design. I knew it would be important to have a web presence in this day in age so I created this site from the ground up with those very tools and they come in handy from time to time, but nothing beats throwing paint on a canvas in my opinion. It’s quite liberating… Be free! Make a mess!
Once again, I thank you for visiting my website and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Have a great day and don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list below to receive updates on art shows, sales and more!
