Kyle Ocean is an artist from the Pacific Northwest who’s work is concept driven and centered around socio-political satire and public involvement. A 2013 graduate of the Oregon State University with a focus in Sculpture and Printmaking. His sculptural work utilizes the graphic language of his printmaking, translating that language into equally expressive three dimensional form, in other material and on a greatly larger scale. "I feel that everything we do has a purpose and the marks we make and steps we go through each day are all unique." Much of Ocean's work focuses on the surrounding environment and how we as people are constantly interacting with each other and our environments around us.
