John Otter is a contemporary artist focused on abstract painting and drawing. He was born in San Diego county in 1973, and studied printmaking and painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, during which time he also attended the New York Studio Program.
In his formative artistic years he worked with collage, mixed media and xerography, leading him to a passion for printmaking, which he pursued adamantly between 1995 and 2000.
Upon returning to California the artist shifted from painting back to drawing, honing his particular style over the past decade.
His work has appeared in literary journals, art auctions, and has been exhibited from California to New York.
