Octavio Ocampo is  one of Mexico’s most prolific artists. He grew up in an artistically gifted family, and he took in the arts with his mother’s milk. This multi-talented artist not only paints, he also sculpts, acts, and dances. It was only in the mid-’70s that he devoted himself solely to painting and sculpture.

Seen from afar, his painting might seem like a simple image, but a closer look reveals it to be made up of dozens, if not hundreds of smaller images. Their arrangement is so delightfully mind-boggling that one can’t help but wonder how he conceptualizes his pieces.
