Esteban Ocampo-Giraldo


Colombian-born painter Esteban Ocampo-Giraldo (b. 1987) creates work that deals in subjects often familial and autobiographical in nature. Ocampo-Giraldo’s portraits depict habitable spaces wherein fading memories of loved ones (and snapshot moments) reside, and in place of any references to specific times or location, a soulful and deeply personal melancholy inhabits each work, if not becoming the very subject at hand.

Ocampo-Giraldo has been living and working in New York since 2013. He earned his Masters in Visual Art from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, and his MFA in Painting from the New York Academy of Art. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the U.S., South America, and Europe.
