It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for day four of my daily street art blog. Today’s post is all about Otto Schade – the Chilean street artist and former architect – who now resides in foggy London Town.
I thought it was only right to give a shout out to this incredible and unique artist, not only because I love his style, but because from the 23rd July until 23rd August, there’s an exhibition of his work in at the Well Hung Gallery in Shoreditch.
Otto Schade’s work can be found in New York, Berlin and of course, East London. You can spot his work a mile off and his pieces range from powerful stencils of children in war zones and to contemporary murals of animals and people including the likes of Barack Obama, Heisenberg and the late Amy Winehouse.
I’ve had the pleasure of finding some amazing work by Otto Schade in places like Old Street, Hackney, Camden and Shoreditch. Here’s some of his best work:
Will you be making the trip to Otto Schade’s solo exhibition in Shoreditch? Or do we really need to go to urban art galleries when we can see everything on the streets for free? In my view, probably not. But this guy is incredible so it’ll definitely be worthwhile.
Feel free to share some of your favourite street art and let me know where you think are the best cities for urban art!
