Otto Schwarz 

Otto Schwarz  PANGAEA

Vienna Contemporary

Dr. Otto Schwarz, Art Historian, Author, Producer, and Artist, born 1972 in Vienna, Austria.
The settings are obviously borrowed from reality, but the pictures seem to send a message from a surreal world. The beholder is often taken as an accomplice by a strong view out of the picture. A British guard sluttishly saluting in front of the visibly tousled Union Jack, a little girl holding a sausage dog with a Renaissance scene behind her, a boy tenderly leaning against a life size lion - dreams are crossing humour in Otto Schwarz' world.
These paintings are full of allusions. Each of them tells a story like a little film - no wonder as the artist was a photographer and a filmmaker before discovering the canvas as his new appointment.
