CNR 2014: Exhibition: Orlando Arocena (USA): IRONMAN 2 - VECTOR TRIBUTE & TERMINATOR - Vector T-800

Orlando is a Mexican-Cuban American, and as a kid in the "cultural melting pot" neighborhood, Orlando loved seeing what other cultures found important. While eating dinner at friends' houses, he would take note of what physical objects were precious to each family. Orlando found the textiles from his mother, a seamstress, and the cabinet sketches from his father, a handyman carpenter, to find the structure of his creativity.

As a Pratt Institute graduate in design, Orlando used his interest in art history and culture to inspire his work. Now, Orlando is a creative consultant working on some of the largest brands in the world. While he enjoys the creativity of consulting by day, he is creating vector art mastery by night.

His Process
Orlando's personal work is vibrant, compelling and mixes the Venetian painting style of overlapping washes with linear gradients in Illustrator. Orlando's creative process starts with researching art history, pop culture, graffiti, anime, commercial and fine art, and constructivist work. Using a Wacom Intuos 4, Orlando's entire process is created within Illustrator.

With Orlando's traditional artistic background, he takes his final vector art and uses a modified yet inspired traditional technique of transferring his vectors onto wood by hand.  Resulting in a beautiful combination of digital media and traditional art. His hand transfer art was featured in a one-artist show, Traversing the Vector at The Lodge Gallery.

His Work
Orlando's work gained him recognition with some of the most popular brands in the world. Jose Cuervo reached out to Orlando for a specialty tequila bottle design with Mexican design inspirations. This bottle would change color as it gets colder. Orlando used his unique style and traditional Hispanic imagery to design a truly unique piece.

At Cafe Neu Romance 2014 he'll present his posters Ironman 2 Vector Tribute & Terminator -Vector T-800.
