Ojembarrena’s love for the art of painting starts in Paris when he is 19 years old. Looking at Monet, Pissarro, Van Gogh, and looking at Bonnard, at Picasso, he receives an education and a delight that will remain with him for the rest of his life.
He considers such a beauty and intelligence out of his reach.
He takes his first steps in painting in his early thirties while teaching at Norwich University in Vermont by the hand of the American painter B. A. King.
When he moves to California in the 70’s to teach at the California State College of San Bernardino, he attends regularly the Life Drawing and Painting classes offered by the School of Fine Arts. He participates with two paintings in the Exhibition of the School of Fine Arts in May of 1980.
Upon his return to Spain in 1981, to teach at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, he starts a long and at times interrupted apprenticeship with the Spanish Realist Master Agustin Reche, which lasts until 2009.
During this period he exhibits and sells some paintings in the gallery of Luis Hernández in Granada.
He lives now in Cape Town, teaching at Dallas College. For him, each painting starts an unknown journey into the meaning of a particular slice of life.
Some forty to fifty paintings of his hung hopefully in the walls of private collectors’ houses enhancing the rooms with the radiation of poetry.
