Montauk artist Dalton Portella is a man of many talents. A global traveler and avid surfer, Portella captures his world, and the many beautiful people and places in it, using a camera and a brush. His @dltnart Instagram account shows a broad vision of the artist’s daily life and work, including photographs of far off cities and towns, wildlife, lovely women and some of the most beautiful local beach scenes around, not to mention some really cool photo-manipulations and digital creations.
Any of these subjects within the greater whole would make a fabulous Instagram gallery, but today we’ve chosen focus on Portella’s paintings.
Mostly watercolors, the work is often spare and quiet, but never weak. His images of birds, sharks, human figures and places of the mind are always arresting and worth a long look. Check out our curated gallery below and follow the link to instagram.com/dltnart to see his complete account.
