10 Texas Artists to Collect Now

Artist Cruz Ortiz, a former high school art teacher who lives and works in San Antonio’s South Side neighborhood, has been commissioned by politicians like Hillary Clinton and Julián and Joaquín Castro. But it’s his personal portrait work, with its whimsy and bold use of color, we love most. His wife is often his muse, but he also paints friends and faces from old photos he collects. Next door to his studio is his other business, Snake Hawk Press, where he produces commemorative posters and prints displaying his knack for rough-edged fonts.
