Otto Schade was born in Chile in 1971. He initially studied Architecture at the Bio Bio University and Construction and Design Architecture in Concepcion, Chile. As a successful architect, he has been awarded for public and private projects.

Otto has always felt an avid fascination for the Surrealists, as well as the freedom which surrounds abstract painting. This influence has made Otto turn his creative skills to painting, which has become his strongest passion and for which he has also been recognized with an honorable mention.

With the development of this other talent, Otto begins a journey in the search for new ideas and wider exposure for his work, taking him to exhibit his work in Concepcion (Chile), Berlin (Germany), Moscow (Russia) , New York (US), London (UK), and now in Amsterdam (Netherlands). He lives and works currently in London.

Otto Schade’s painting ranges from abstract and surrealism to even urban art. Working mainly with oil paint and traditional supports such as stretched canvas, he also practices other techniques such as collage, illustration and stencil. The themes behind his compositions read in a personal, metaphorical sense with a sharp, ironic touch.

Otto Schade creates some of the most distinctive street art around. His paintings show a unique style, proving an inventive imagination as well as a refined technique. He’s well known for his depictions of the human form, composed from interwoven ribbons.
