Brad Thomas, whose 25 year career in the art world (as an artist & curator) has been about identifying and encouraging talent, named Nico Amortegui as one of the area's up and coming visual artists he recommends keeping an eye on! Click here to see full story. - The Charlotte Observer, April 2015

"Dominating the front half of the (VAE) show is a large paper sculpture titled “El Músico” by Nico Amortegui. The sculpture is a Dubuffet-like assemblage of a pied piper figure painted in raw outlines and twisting, elongated limbs. Bold in both scale and media application, it’s bravura in painted cardboard." -, Dec 2014

"Nico Amortegui is no Basquiat. His neo-expressionist paintings are lyrically composed with a distinct South American flair. He imbues his canvases with a sense of spirituality. He captures love and strength even in the weakest moments of life."  - Art Talk for UGallery, April 2012.
