Nate Otto is an artist from Chicago whose work explores urban landscapes and architecture filtered through his own vision.  Mapping, gentrification, development, decay, and the inherent and ongoing change in the urban space are among the ideas he tries to tackle with his graphic, stylized, and simplified drawings, paintings, and murals.  Nate has had several solo art shows in Chicago and he has shown his art all over the world.  As an illustrator he has contributed at Basecamp, DNA Info, NPR, and many others.  He has done murals for Nike, Facebook, interior Define, VML, and many more.  He is a graduate of Columbia College in Chicago and he has been a full time artist since 2012.
