Otto Sherman is one of the most influential artists of the Stamp Art Movement. An award winning Illustrator and graphic designer in his earlier years, much of his work, then, was singularly focused on his signature style of big animated gestural forms and highly saturated chroma.
Today Sherman’s work as a Stamp Artist blends a distinctive artistic style of surreal masquerade with incisive emotionally charged social critique, he integrates these disparate contrasting themes in his art with startling results. by exposing societal decadence,corruption, and the malevolent power of dictators over unfortunate people, together with randomly juxtaposed Heraldry and Medalling, (a recurring theme) these, are the two defining visual narratives, central to his work. Sherman brings Hans Holbein’s King Henry the VIII to the 21st century in strident bling, bejewled, bedazzled, bewitched, and a little worse for wear. Alastaire Brown
