NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

Color contrasts, dramatically saturated body representations blended with a bit of irony have brought Ottos works to attention and appreciation in the art world from the early beginning of his career. He has proved himself with a number of personal exhibitions in Latvia and countless group exhibitions outside its borders. His works are included in the LNMM collection and major private collections in Latvia and elsewhere in the world.

The works devoted to this exhibition focuses on the desire of modern society to glide smoothly along a set curve without disturbing anyone, while collecting more and more addicted ones. In the works, the playful contrasts with the seriousness of the themes chosen: the blunting of personal opinion, a society-imposed belief that the world’s unified direction knows its solution. Being outside this global composition creates the feeling of outcast for an individual, unfitting for general flow. It tries to interlock him with it in a variety of social trend exhausting nuances, making him the carrier or supporter of this united thought, envying the possibility of making his own decisions.
