It is essential to link Oreian’s works with the history of painting in terms of technique. He is drawn by the secular relationship between painting and organic materials, the human body and it's obsession to capture the color of skin, flesh and bone. The results are either this vectorial meshes that keep the index of color but loose the structure of a body completely or collective portraits which become stuck in between state of visceral morbidity and poetry. It is important For the artists to unify complexity into one work with the almost neverending and slow developing texture that runs through all the images to connect better with the materials and allowing reflection on the matter.
One of the most important references in Oreian’s work is ‘Titian’, the painter who is known as the 'flesh master’, sometimes using up to 60 layers of thin color to obtain carnation. He and in general the Venetian school were the first to improvise during the development of the painting, changing sometimes characters on the canvas. These 'impromptu' actions are very much part of the way Oreian’s work is defined.
