About Erik

Erik Otto was born and raised in the SF Bay Area, and has worked professionally in the arts for over ten years.

Apart from his art practice, Otto designs and builds installations, theater sets, retail store fronts, and independent film sets on commission. In a recent residency at Recology San Francisco, he created a show from only repurposed found and salvaged materials.

Otto strives to make work that is both expressive and conceptual, which captures the moment where beauty meets chaos. His work has been exhibited on street corners and in distinguished galleries alike.

"My husband and I have been big fans of Erik's since we first came upon his space at an Open Studio event, when we purchased our first two pieces. He is incredibly thoughtful, complex and deeply involved in the spirit of community, which is amply reflected in his work. Over the years, we have continued to collect his work, which adds so much to our everyday lives."
