His work is in major collections in Mexico, the National Palace and the collections of the last three presidents. In Europe that great collector, the late Florence Gould, had a landscape of the New York skyline from her apartment, at her house at Cap D'Antibes; H.M. The King of Spain is also a great admirer. Ocampo is the master of his métier and unique among today's painters. 

The talents of Octavio Ocampo were not limited to painting and sculpture but also extended to acting and dancing. While at the Art Institute of San Francisco, he studied all these disciplines and pursued both a film and theater career. In 1976 he began to devote himself solely to painting and sculpture. 

Celebrity portraits for which Ocampo has been commissioned in the United States include President Jimmy Carter (commissioned by President Lopez Portillo and was presented as a gift from the United Mexican States), Jane Fonda, Cher (for the front and back covers of her latest album), and Cesar Chavez. 

Ocampo now works and resides in Tepoztlan, north of Mexico City, it is considered to be one of the most magical places on earth. 

He works primarily in the metamorphic style - using a technique of superimposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details within the images that he creates.

...Entonces me encolericé y maldije, con la maldición de un interior que se rompe por dentro, de la tormenta, de los rayos que se encienden intermitentemente coléricos… y quedaron mis ojos derramados en lágrimas. Y en el cielo se dejaron de encender las estrellas, y el trueno murió, y las bombillas que me alumbraran no tuvieron luz, y el cauce del mar permaneció inamovible. 

Miré la limpieza del espejo, que había cambiado; y los cristales me miraban empañados; y en el espejo se leía: INGENUA
Y mis ojos cayeron sobre aquella esquina de una pared blanca, miré mi reflejo y mi rostro estaba pálido, mientras me iba deslizando hacia el suelo. Y alcé bruscamente la cabeza que apoyaba mi mano, y sosteniéndome sobre la pared, escuché. Pero no se oía ninguna voz en toda la vasta soledad que me embargaba, y la gran dama que me miraba desde el espejo decía: INGENUA. Y la gran dama se reflejó ausente, desapareció tras el vaho, tan solemne era mi carrera tras ella, al punto que dejé de verla…

Bruno Di Maio was born in 1944 by Italian parents in Tripoli, Libya. He lives and works in Tuscany: Italy. Bruno has worked many years in the fine art restoration field, acquiring a prodigious technical ability. His work reflects his great love for renaissance painting, yet at the same time a strong desire for expressive autonomy. Di Maio tries successfully, in his allegorical and surrealistic interpretation of the present to give life to the recollective quality of the past. The originality of his vision is seen in the sumptuous subject matter, the quality of his chiaroscuro and the dramatic light effects on the figures and objects in his paintings. His work is happy, carnal, rich in color and vibrant with light. In addition to painting, his artistic training extends to sculpture, engraving, excellent watercolors as astounding Trompe L'oeil mural painting.
