Angel Otero Puerto Rican, b. 1981


Angel Otero (b. 1981) is best known for his process- based paintings and deconstructive porcelain and steel sculpture. While early works have been influenced by memories based on his early life in his native Puerto Rico, referencing photographs and other family memorabilia combined with the gestures of 20th century painting, his latest works highlight artistic material and its physicality.


Angel Otero received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recent solo exhibitions include Elegies at the Bronx Mu-seum of Art (2017), Everything and Nothing at Contemporary Art Museum Houston (2016), Born in the Echoes at Lehmann Maupin Hong Kong (2016), Murmurs at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles (2016), Lago at Kavi Gupta CHICAGO (2015), Pintura Ascendente at the Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno in Las Palmas, Spain (2015) and Anachronic at Susanne Vielmetter Projects in Los Angeles, CA (2014).
