Juan Sepulveda (B.F.A., painting, 2009) works primarily with oils and utilizes this large medium to express his images of satire, humor, emotion and nature. Highly influenced by celebrated artists in his youth, he has ventured into a world of contemporary and iconic subject matters. Sepulveda believes that not all art must be serious and meaningful; he loves to paint subjects and compositions that amuse both him and the viewer. Over the years, his technique has expanded beyond oils and a somber palette to include bright yellows and pinks along with acrylics and spray paints.
