artist of the week :: erik otto

erik otto is another artist i stumbled upon while reading JUXTAPOZ... usually i find the best artists in the ads for shows, rather than in their feature articles... and he is another example of this.

i was immediately drawn in because of the wild textural surfaces mixed with the really smooth forground objects. its the perfect combination of pop art and street art - the clean and crisp right next to the grit.
