Visitor’s Guide profile: Artist Octavio Logo

This year’s Fayetteville Visitor’s Guide features four profiles from a handful of influential locals to give visitors an inside track on some of the best things to do, places to eat and shop, and must-experiences while in Fayetteville. One of our profilees is Octavio Logo, a local artist whose unique style is popping up all over Northwest Arkansas.

Octavio, who is originally from Mexico City, can usually be found at his studio in South Fayetteville. Below are a few of his answers to questions we threw at him.

How would you describe your art?

My work is an exploration of a visual language seeking to understand and translate, in my own terms, my surroundings, my experience and myself. My art is a product of its time.

How does Fayetteville inspire you?

Where can people go in Fayetteville to experience more artists?

Fenix Fayetteville Gallery, Art Ventures, La La Land Gallery, The Local Color, Backspace

What’s your favorite meal/drink in Fayetteville?

Mimosa brunch at Nomads.

What’s the perfect day like in Fayetteville?

Morning coffee and reading at Arsaga’s at the Depot, then biking to Lake Fayetteville and surroundings with my sketchbook ready. Take your time to go to downtown Springdale and come back to enjoy First Thursday at the square.

What’s the most surprising thing about Fayetteville?

The nature. I’m amazed to have unexpected encounters with wild and beautiful fauna every time I’m outdoors.
