Chilean born street artist Otto Schade has spray-painted his skateboard in his traditionally iconic “ribbon-esque” style.
Otto first gained notoriety in 2009 when he started painting on the streets mainly in the UK urban center of Shoreditch (London) using the pseudonym "Osch". Schade came up with a quick and effective way to deliver his messages using simple 1 or 2 layer stencils, culminating in his instantly recognisable trademark Orbs.
By using his more established and sophisticated stenciling techniques Osch continues to evolve his distinctive ribbon style, which he uses in part to criticize and ironically depict some of the world's current social issues. Many of his works hold satirical messages in order to raise social awareness and reach the boundaries of human vision. This political and social commentary is often present in his practice as an urban artist and has been an inherent feature of his works, which increasingly appear as street art around the world.
Trained formerly as an architect, Otto has worked for architecture design companies such as Benoy, Civicart and Zaha Hadid. He also gave lectures on Design at the Southbank University from 2008 till 2013.
After practicing architecture for more than a decade, Schade dedicated himself to creative skills, particularly to painting. As an artist he has exhibited his work in Chile, Russia, Sweden, France, Netherlands, United States, Hong Kong, Japan and (Germany).
Osch has painted at many art festivals such as the biggest street art festival in Europe, "Upfest" Bristol, "Sand, Sea and Spray" Blackpool,"City of Colors" Birmingham, "Wynwood" Miami US, "Sunscape" Malta, as well as "Stick Together" and "Urban Art Festival"both in Amsterdam.
