Currently I am a visiting professor of Painting at the University of Chapel Hill, I dedicate myself to painting because I think it is the mission of my life, I believe that painting is very important for me not only as a means of expression but also as a historical document, That is why I believe that painting must have a space and tradition must also be respected and above all painters, it is necessary to open space for painters.

“Beyond any political or ideological agenda, I am a Painter.” Renzo Ortega.

Diversity by Renzo Ortega

Do you want diversity?
I want a house and going to the university
don’t ask me for my Abuelita’s medicine
if you don’t give healthcare to our Family

You call me Latinx
But, do you know my name?
Don’t call me Hispanic
and get offended if I call you Gringo

We try to live together
and our kids -en la Frontera- still in cages
our families are divided
and you are waiting for the Taco-Truck
to come to your gentrified neighborhood

We are not invited to the table
you only want the people of color
for the photo corporate
but, as soon we cross the line
you call the police, the Migra!
throwing our people in jail

But do you know what?
we always come back
our blood is here
our dead bodies are here
our land is here

“Yes you can! the fighting continues”

Last Wednesday, August 27 of this year, the Consulate General of Mexico in Raleigh became the scene of a unique and emotional event directed by the Consul General of Mexico, Claudia Velasco Osorio: the presentation of the book "El Arte. Espejo de an Immigrant. Story of Cornelio Campos", written by María del Refugio Sandoval Olivas, affectionately known as Cuquis Sandoval. This book combines the richness of the narrative with the chronicle of a life marked by migration and a passion for art.
