siehe Wikipedia/Manuel Ocampo:

His work fuses sacred Baroque religious iconography with the secular and serious political narrative with the cartoonish.Ocampo frequently revisits and makes reference to the art historical canon of political allegorists including Leon Golub, Gericault, Goya, Daumier with allusions to contemporary figures including political satirist R. Crumb Modernist painter Philip Guston. Ocampo’s dark, often disturbing Gothic paintings are attributed with transforming horror into exquisite beauty, history into art history, purgatory into salvation.

In 2005, his work was the subject of a large-scale survey at Casa Asia in Barcelona, and Lieu d’Art Contemporain, Sigean, France.
