Talk to Otto Placht

Images, memories, stories, hallucinations. Enter in a conversation with Otto Placht and connect with the rampant world of his art. Otto will walk you through his exhibition at Divus London, presenting works created during and roughly inspired by his short stay in Deptford while still haunted by jungle spirits.

Part of Energia Prima painted and drawed, Otto Placht‘s first ever London show opened in Divus London from November 28 until January 24, 2015. For the occasion, he created large wall painting inspired by Deptford High Street and his inhabitants.

The Man between The Forest, The Lake, The Drug and The City...
He began as an expressive painter in the 1980s, and was considered one of the biggest talents of his generation. From his Central European roots he draws his relationship towards symbolism, mystical decadence, surrealistic expression and new figural painting. In 1993 he visited Peru for the first time and has been returning ever since transforming his first-hand knowledge and personal experience into striking works of art distinctive in their style and creative energy inspired by shamanic rituals of the Shipibo tribe.
