Blendscapes by Oriol Angrill Jorda

Oriol Angrill Jorda is a Spanish illustrator who works with a variety of media including pastels, watercolors, colored pencil, acrylics, graphite and charcoal. Strangely enough Jorda never planned to work in the realm of art. He had no interest in art until he studied illustration in Palma de Mallorca, and realized he had an exceptional skill at rendering what he saw into realistic drawings.

His work contains an interesting style that could be mistaken for computer generation. His latest series Blendscapes, are definitely some of his best work. Using his trademark style of rainbow gradients he has added a new component to his work which brings the viewer into a place much further than the subject he portrays.

In Blendscapes he combines two images in one, a landscape and a figure, giving the subject an environment that not only interacts with but physically becomes part of them. The environment changes its mode from a physical space, exterior to the body, to something that functions from inside the body; creating an interaction of space from the inside out rather than from the outside in.
