On the occasion of his exhibition in NYC, Otto Winkler adds SKY to his name.  
 

The suffix SKY represents the artist’s aspiration that his work be world-spanning.

Otto Winkler SKY’s work – usually created and presented in the form of series – wants to express grace and beauty. By applying special techniques like color shades, like in his Cosmic Dream Landscapes”, the artist achieves three-dimensional effects.
