New Otto Schade Street Art ‘Her Hometown’ in Croydon

It has been a little while since we have seen any fresh London works from Street Artist Otto Schade, however he has made up for that with a fantastic recent large-scale addition to Croydon. 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 setting to offer a combination of the creative and fun with his ribbon effect style creations which offer so much flowing intricacy to look at, and offer a glimpse at his former career as an architect, countered by his stark and powerful silhouette piecesIn this instance it is a ribbon effect style composition that Otto schade has placed up with a striking colourful porrait of a female subject set gazing down the High Street and aptly entitled ‘Her Hometown’. This work can be found in Katherine Street at the corner with Croydon High Street.
