Erik otto

We are drawn to Erik Otto's inherent optimism as he explores fleeting moments of change and discovery. Utilizing a variety of materials from traditional painting to mixed-media sculptures and installations, his work is graphic and bold, and yet, somehow humble in it's interest in the almost imperceptible shifts that mark passages through life, emotion and time.

 

Otto has exhibited in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Mexico City, and Vancouver. In addition to creating commissioned work for notable clients and collectors, Otto was selected for both the SF Recology Artist-in-Residence Program, VSCO Artist Initiative Grant and had work featured in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts triennial Bay Area Now. Otto recently completed his largest painting commission to date for Grand Hyatt San Francisco’s permanent collection. Otto has a BFA from San Jose State University.
