Hello my name is Oscar! Mr. Oscar Zamora if you want to get technical. I was born in 1989 in the hot Palm Springs, CA. Grew up in Glenwood, MN with the snow and currently live in Fargo, ND which can get super windy. September 4th is my birthday so keep that in mind ;D.
Second oldest to three brothers and three sisters on my mom’s side. On my dad’s side I think it’s one brother and two sisters. An uncle to three nieces and a super awesome best friend to everyone everywhere :).
May 2012– Graduated from North Dakota State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Visual Arts. Web Design was my minor. After graduating I moved around and did some freelance work: drawing portraits, art consulting, face painting, graphic designing, and some web designing.
The materials I like to use include: graphite pencils, color pencils, acrylic paints, color sticks and ink. As for the software I like to play with: Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, Inkscape and Anime Studio.
Inspirations: Leonardo Da Vinci’s portraits and human studies inspires me to be more analytical with my pieces. Paul Cezanne’s brush work in his paintings inspires me to show my work even as drawings. Salvador Dali’s explorations with dream-like pieces inspires me to think the same to embark upon adventures. People in general inspire me to be more open. Animals to be more observant.
The goal for my art is to provide an experience that can change a person’s life. Even if you don’t ask me to do so I may end up drawing you (using a photo reference of course).
Thanks for reading this and take care! 🙂
