Yesterday saw the return of activity from one of London’s most proactive Street Artists, namely Otto Schade who has been busy painting around the world since the new year and finally treated his residing town of London to some fresh reworkings. Replacing his Meerkat work put up last year (covered here) with a return of his delightful ‘Smiley London’ which has been absent from Brick Lane for some eighteen months or so now. Otto’s painting styles range from the abstract and surreal. Working predominantly with oil paint, and incorporating practices such as collage, illustration and stencil. The themes behind his compositions read in a personal, metaphorical sense with a sharp, ironic touch. In contrast this one design steps away from such an outlook which is so prevalent in his output and gone with something that is as ever intricate as all of his ‘ribbon’ designs but with a much more initially engaging subject.
