Omar Chacon


Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Omar Chacon received his MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. His body of work continues to be influenced by the intricate patterns and weavings mirrored in the traditional folk art of South America. There is no doubt, however, that Omar is a thoroughly contemporary artist. His exuberant color combinations function also as a visual metaphor for today's multicultural world. He is fascinated by the rich diversity that exists across cultures, and in mixing the paint he is telling the soulful story of the sancocho, the collision of histories melting together in an orgiastic fashion. The resulting paintings are impressively inventive with his unique use of medium and burst forth with beauty.
