Francis Ochoa is a 23 year old fine artist from Los Angeles. Working mainly in oils, Francis creates beautiful imagery in a style similar to Renaissance and Baroque art while also incorporating more modern elements. The paintings are highly detailed works that often include a variety of elements and textures that really bring each piece to life. Learn about Francis’ creation process, goals, and thoughts on art in our interview below.
These days, I mostly work with oil. But I’ve a history working with both acrylic and watercolor. Other times I play around with pencils. I tend to use whatever the piece I’ve envisioned needs because each medium has this inherent weight to it and each one conveys and presents itself differently.
Because my work is essentially, in its form, a catharsis. Most of my work can be called as a commentary or a statement, I believe. So put that together with the styles I’m influenced by (renaissance, baroque, rococo art), I would describe my style as classic with a bit of modernity thrown in.
