Alisa Ochoa

Alisa Ochoa is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Southern California. She applies bold colors and poetic language to all areas of visual expression, including sculpture, painting, and video. Play is a serious matter in her work: meticulously crafted objects and their material stand in for time, memory, and resilience. Ochoa’s artistic achievement has been recognized with residencies at Hunter College Ceramic Department, Penland School of Craft, and Kala Art Institute, and with exhibitions nationwide. Her artwork has been reviewed online and in print, including The Los Angeles Times, in which David Pagel wrote “Alisa Ochoa’s homemade book, in which design tells the story so well that words are obsolete.” She was recently appointed to the inaugural Arts Commission for the City of Costa Mesa.
