Each artist differs from the other for background and technique but they both work towards the same direction: to give a perfect and deceptive representation of reality.
DiegoKoi (Lamezia Terme, 1989), despite being very young, is considered to be one of the finest hyperreaplistic painter of the world. Its work has been featured in several shows along with paintings by great masters like Chuck Close (Clayarch Gimhae Museum, South Korea, 2015).
Its research investigates the deepest conceptual meaning of the image reproduction through a breath-taking technique, a predilection for human portraiture and a photographic sense of perspective.
DiegoKoi’s artworks depict an improved and partially revised version of reality, therefore artificial and fragile. Viewer’s first instinct is not to contemplate the painting but to obsessively research in each work any sign of imperfection, which could betray its human nature.
J.E. Ochoa (Medellín, 1983) shows a reality in balance between figurative and abstract, on a borderline threatened only by its own vision: “reality, without sense, would appear all abstract”.
Ochoa’s work gravitates around blurred, filtered, images that are a perfect portrait of our very personal memories, photographically defined just in the ephemeral instant in which they are lived.
Technique is what makes its work even more interesting: light and evanescent portraits generated not by adding particulars with a meticulous brushstroke but by eliminating colour using a big flat brush and an aggressive gesture.
Considered by critics as one of the most interesting interpreter of contemporary painting, he managed to win several prizes. Juan Eugenio Ochoa alongside with his career as an artist works as a cardiologist. His research reflects and generates from the juxtaposition between his medical mission to heal, and to get things back to their natural order, and his artistic aim to destabilize through doubt and uncertainty.
