Visual artist Angel Otero on discovering his creative voice

Clip: 09/16/2019 | 3m 6s

Artist Angel Otero’s brand of visual storytelling is a unique one: he creates oil skins from paint poured onto glass and peeled off in sheets once it dries. But as a child growing up in Puerto Rico, Otero had a very different understanding of what art was -- and a more traditional career path laid out before him. Otero shares his brief but spectacular take on his artistic process and body of work.
