Otto Duecker – Photorealistic Icons

Otto Duecker has been exploring the realm of new realism for over thirty years. He taught for over a decade while developing his unique approach to painting the human figure in precise detail.

In a series of works presented by Plus One Gallery, Duecker takes a stab at painting portraits of iconic modern figures like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Winston Churchill, and creates them in a fashion where they look as if they are old photographs hanging from a wall.
