About

Ceramic sculpture by Carlos Otero, 2016. Carlos Otero. Untitled, 2015. Ceramic. Measures: 9.5” H x 8.5” W x 4.25” D. Pedestals: 3.65” L x 3.25” W x 2.25” H. Carlos Otero is an architect, designer and sculptor based in New York City. Born and raised in Argentina. Otero received his education at the University of Buenos Aires in Architecture. In 1996 he relocated to New York City and in 2001 founded his firm Carlos Otero Design Inc. As Otero's interests gradually shifted towards the fine arts, he began devoting more time to sculpting, and in 2010 spent two-years in Hong Kong intensifying his ceramic practice. Otero draws inspiration from Brutalist and primitive architecture, in particular the works of Le Corbusier and the mud architecture of Mali, Machu Picchu and Cappadocia. His beautifully crafted sculptures are often figurative; they can appear almost animated playful and whimsical while at the same time seeming rooted in a deep mystery. The architect as artist is ever present in Otero’s powerful sculptures; he invites us into a world evocative of a timeless dream.
