Daniel Cortez aka Decertor is from Lima, Peru. He is a painter interested in building weatherproof memories in public spaces. He began his career with no formal studies in art, and his first inspiration came from portraits of the common man and woman that make up the human scenery of the Peruvian cities.
His style started with the exercise of realism but then developed to emphasize the interconnectivity between the individual and the community in the social psyche. As an active street painter, he was part of the Hip Hop movement in Lima, always involving his work on social issues. This contributed to finding their way on muralism, risking new formats, and reinterpreting pre-Hispanic iconography in his style.
Decertor about his works: “Several months ago I started spontaneously painting tiny hummingbirds in different places. Making them is just as satisfying as discovering them hidden in unexpected walls, columns and corners.”
