Collection: Otto Schade

Otto Schade was born in Chile on the 30th October 1971. 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 and Urban Sculptor, being rewarded for public and private projects. 

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.  The themes behind his compositions are treated with a sharp, ironic touch. 

After moving to  Shoreditch, Otto  became interested in the local street art and once again adapted his style, this time to painting on the streets using the pseudonym “Osch”.  He developed his orb style for communicating his anti-war theme and his trademark ribbon style that emerges out of  his  knowledge of the use of space gained from his  architectural background.    

Otto has taken part in some of the biggest art festivals such as the “Upfest” Bristol, the “Sand, Sea and Spray” in Blackpool  and  “City of Colors” Birmingham.   His works have also  been exhibited in  Wynwood in Miami, USA as well as in  Chile, Kenya,  Japan,  China and all around  Europe.
