From the Virgil Ortiz website:

His designs are a captivating balance between the provocative, edgy, and traditional. Inspired by travel and music in his early years, Ortiz began designing clothing for his friends and family which ultimately led him to create more complex designs utilizing different textiles such as leather, latex and vinyl.

Through his formative experiences, Indigene was born. In August of 2006, Ortiz launched his stunning collection of luxury handbags, outerwear and jewelry. Earth colored suede and leather jackets and handbags bear the VO Signature Marks: Water, Sun, Wild Spinach and Secret Writing are just some of the unique elements that create the high demand for his pieces.

Born into a family of Cochiti Pueblo traditional potters, Ortiz began creating pottery at age six. It wasn’t until around the age of fifteen he realized that what he was doing was considered art. It was at this time that he broke away from the traditional and created his own style of figurative pottery.

Drawing on the legacy of generations of family members working with clay, his daring designs honor both the old and the new. Ortiz is equally skillful working with clay as he is with video, graphic design and haute couture, notably the fashion house of New York fashion designer Donna Karan.

Ortiz’s professional agenda goes beyond the wealth and notoriety of his talent. He’s intent on creating opportunities for children and his community that reflect the legacy of his ancestors as well as promoting global awareness of Pueblo culture. “I have something very important to do before I go. I want to preserve my culture and inspire our youth to accomplish whatever it is they dream to be.”

Ortiz continues to live and work in Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico.
