"Go Spurs," he says.  That's okay, he is also a 'BIG' Dallas Cowboys fan. Sunday's football is religion in the Cruz casa, and it is mandatory for the entire family to dress up in blue and root on the Dallas Cowboys. Cruz uses his art form to address issues related to his experiences growing up in the bi-cultural landscape of South Texas.Thoroughly grounded in the history of art, contemporary art practices, and social-political cultural movements Ortiz’s unique language fuses classical icons with symbols of contemporary pop culture.  He engages the public with interactive works such as wheat paste murals, communal art events, guerrilla AM radio broadcasts, and ephemeral street sculptures.
