Santikos Art in the Garden at the San Antonio Botanical Garden presents the work of a young emerging Mexican artist, Alejandro Martin, a.k.a. Otto. Six of Otto’s five-foot sculptures will be exhibited at the Garden now through January 2020.
Based in Mexico City, Otto’s metal sculptures are informed by digital symbols of his generation. Bold, larger-than-life hashtags feature prominently in his works alongside asterisks and block figures that seem to emerge from a real life Minecraft© game. Otto studied at the Lumen School and has developed projects at the Art Institute of Chicago, and has collaborated with musical artist BEZESIE to create the cover art for their newest album, The Lights. Of his sculpture, he says that his art lives in a world made and seen in lines.
