One has to look long and hard at Octavio's paintings. The longer one looks at his work, the more that is revealed. Faces come into focus at a distance and metamorphose into something else entirely in close up. Flowers become faces, mountains speak to each other, and mourners over a coffin become the face of Christ. His works are full of symbolism, endlessly fascinating, each revealing a new facet, different to each viewer. 

Octavio Ocampo works primarily in the metamorphic style - using a technique of superimposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details within the images that he creates.  The longer you study his works, the more hidden images you seem to find.  You can view a larger image of the works below by simply clicking on it.

This house on isla mujeres was built by mexican artist octavio ocampo and his brother, an architect. The inside, it is even more beautiful than you can imagine.  There is an amazing mirror in one of the bathrooms made of a wreath of sliced conch shells. One thing in particular that catches your attention is the art on the walls. 

"I am fascinated by the forces of Good and Evil and the Sun (male) and the Moon (female). I live in Tepoztlan, which is a mountainous region southwest of Mexico City, and is considered to be one of the most magical places on earth. Like the Bermuda triangle, there is a strange and unexplained, but extremely powerful, confluence of magnetic forces seemingly concentrated in the Tepozteco Mountain." - Octavio Ocampo
