Ruben Ochoa

by greater-la

Ruben Ochoa was born in Oceanside, California in 1974. He attended the Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles, and University of California, Irvine. A sculptor who often works in construction materials – concrete, rebar, dirt – Ochoa coaxes the conflicts of structure and environment into taut, arresting compositions. Ochoa’s work has been exhibited at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Miami Art Museum; MOCA, Los Angeles, and elsewhere; it’s held in the collections of MOCA, LA; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, San Diego, and others.
