Raphael MONTAÑEZ ORTIZ

(1934- )
Nationality: american

Raphael Montañez Ortiz makes art that is the product of self-imposed discipline, complex methods, and ritualistic processes - some drawing on his Puerto Rican, Portuguese, and Native American heritage.
In the 1960s Ortiz developed his own movement, “Destructivism,” an experimental art process that included destroying and reconstructing objects in public performances. Destructivism was made famous when Ortiz destroyed a piano on The Johnny Carson Show by "playing" it with an ax. This clip covers 30 years of piano destructivist performances, from London in 1966 to the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1996.
