Otto Schade Concepcion, Chile
After a degree in Architecture at the Bio Bio University and one in Construction and Design in Concepción, Chile, he started his career as an Architect with his own practice and as Urban Sculptor, being rewarded for public and private projects. Otto was also an Architect Lecturer at Southbank University in London.
Fascinated by Surrealism and abstract art, Otto turned his creative skills to painting, which has become his strongest passion. Originally working with oil paint on canvas, he has since consistently explored different styles and mediums – growing, adapting changing his style to include other techniques such as collage, illustration and stencil free-hand spray paint on canvas and walls. Most of the themes behind his compositions are treated with a sharp, ironic touch.
