Octavio Ocampo...

Octavio Ocampo, is one fine Artist and muralist. Octavio was born February 28, 1943 in Celaya, Guanajuato. Coming from a family of designers Octavio first studied art as a boy. He was educated at the Fine Art Institute in Mexico City and San Francisco Art Institute. He has been exhibiting since 1972. His love for art did not stop there. Octavio not only was an artist but also did acting and dancing. He pursued both film and theater career as well. After Octavio devoted his time solely to sculpture and painting and since has been primarily working on metamorphic style using a technique of super imposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details within the images he makes.

To look at Octavio's painting takes a little practice but you will love the outcome of all he does. One has to look long and hard. The longer you look the more you will see. Another reason why I love his art work is because it's filled with symbolism. Here are a few I was able to get for you to look at.
