About the Artist

Angel Ortega, also known as Garzig is heavily influenced by metal music, their Mexican heritage, and their love for redesigning pop culture with a low brow chic. All of Angel’s work starts with a pencil sketch that they fine tune using digital software. 
Angel currently has a sculpture piece at the Mexic-Arte Museum, Fideo Paleta Man. Many of the techniques Angel used to build the sculpture were taught by her dad and art mentors.

Artist Statement

“The work I’m submitting for Changarreando are pieces I’ve created during 2020. With these pieces I not only plan to reproduce them in a tangible format, but I’ve also created digitally with animations in the works.”

Artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.

Angel Ortega featured her artwork on the Changarrito cart outside the Museum’s entrance on July 17 -18 and 24 – 25, 2021.
