With new technological innovations that can manipulate art to make it look realistic, it is truly fascinating to see a piece created by a human that looks like it could have been made by a machine. Yago Hortal, a Spanish artist working in Berlin, showcases acrylic based works, on either paper or canvas, illustrating wonderful mixtures of colour seemingly created on a computer. It looks something like what Apple would market for graphic designer types. Instead, this work, done by a real person with real connection to the piece, is enthralling, allowing the viewer to fall into the stream of colours, as if to be
carried away by them.
