I construct imagery for 2D works and new media projects that are informed by experience, technology and imagination. Painting in layers, I use masking techniques to jumble formal qualities such as abstraction and realistic representation. I source imagery from mapping platforms, API's and social media networks as a way to trace the effect technology has on the construct of perception. The combination of divergent elements suggests a pluralistic visual experience bridging the historical framework of painting, self and the influence of technology on image making.

Daniel Ochoa was born in 1980 in Santa Rosa, California. He has lived and worked in San Francisco, CA and Brooklyn, NY, and studied abroad in Florence, Italy. He is currently living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
