Otto Schade initially studied architecture at the University of Bío-Bío, Architecture, Construction, and Design, in Concepción, Chile. As a successful architect, he has been awarded for public and private projects.
Otto has always felt an avid fascination for the Surrealists, as well as the freedom which surrounds abstract painting. This influence has made Otto turn his creative skills to painting, which has become his strongest passion and for which he has also been recognized with an honorable mention.
With the development of this other talent, Otto begins a journey in the search for new ideas and wider exposure for his work, taking him to exhibit his work in Concepcion (Chile), Berlin (Germany), Moscow (Russia), New York (US), Amsterdam (Netherlands) and finally to London (UK), where he is currently living and working.
