We love how Otto is heavily influenced by past Art movements and still pays homage to traditional art techniques in his work. Working mainly with oil paint and traditional supports such as stretched canvas, he also practices other techniques such as collage, illustration and stencil.
Otto studied architecture at the Bio University of Chile. He went on to become a very successful architect, gaining awards for his work. After moving to London, Otto became heavily inspired by the city's street art scene, especially in Shoreditch. Finding a way to combine his love of art and architecture, Otto developed his famous ribbon style. Otto has exhibited his work across the UK and Europe, as well as the USA, Africa and Asia.Read less
