Gavin Libotte

Project Lead, Photographer

Gavin Libotte is a multidisciplinary Perth based artist who works under the monika Ortemel, a name inspired by a dream. Ortemel’s personal influences dwell into the beyond, surreal and supernatural, crossing mediums between canvas, walls, film, and music in the hope to discover more within through the culmination and emergence of his practices.


Currently working on a commission-based range of NFT’s with another two commissions contracted by Shire of Christmas Island, ranging from a series of watercolour illustrations for a book of historic events and places, and a position of director for an upcoming augmented reality project involving the murals he painted from 2017 to present.
