Omar Chacon "Bacanales"

Omar Chacon, born in 1979, is a New York abstract artist who is originally from Bogota, Columbia. He received his BFA at Ringling School of Art and Design and his MFA at San Francisco Art Institute. His work has recently been shown in 2008/2009 at Queens International Museum of Art and Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ. His work has also been shown in private art galleries in Milan, New York, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sarasota, and Stanford. His work consists of bright ovals of vibrant hues, where he greatly inspired by his vibrant life of his native Columbia and from his grandfather’s paintings.

In order to create these beautiful paintings, Chacon uses a process in which he builds up acrylic paint on a plastic surface for each oval, then peels each shape and then adheres them to canvas. Chacon is also influenced by intricate patterns and weavings found in the traditional folk art of South American indigenous peoples.
