L TV: Inside Angel Otero’s Ridgewood Studio

Since visiting Angel Otero‘s studio last month we’ve spotted his work everywhere, from Bushwick to the Armory Show, and of course at Lehmann Maupin on the Lower East Side, where his New York solo debut Memento continues through April 17. In the above video he explains his process’s beginnings in traditional abstract expressionism, how mistakes make the best pieces, and why he prefers fake gold. Shot and edited by L Mag videographer Louis Gruber.
