Illustration Art by Genzoman
Genzoman with his real name Gonzalo Ordoñez Arias is a great illustrator born in Arica port, from Chile’s North. He currently lives in the capital of Chile, Santiago.
Genzoman approached the kind of art is inspired by “manga and anime.” Characters illustrated by artist belonging to the following categories: fantasy, horror, sci-fi, monsters, game development and political. In my opinion he is one of the most talented artists in this field. Its working tools are very few but extremely valuable, namely: imagination and Wacom Intuos tablet. Heroes of Genzoman’s work are not real . Are exaggerated, even deformed, but in a way pleasing to the eye, specifically the author. We compare Genzomanien’s works with some pictures taken from the bottom to up assembly, in a less inclined plan. This author’s characters look like “the giant in the country dwarfs”, increasing even more fantastic picture of Genzoman world. This technique applied by the artist conjures us to cartoon “Gulliver in Lilliput”, who has delighted childhood. I think this cartoon could be an inspiration for a new art technique similar to Genzoman.

Her reputation was permanently modified by social and political changes, especially after the Mexican Revolution. Marina remains a controversial figure who alternates between right and wrong, victim and traitor or simply the mother of the new Mexican people.
