ASTA & OTTO
Lauren Asta and Nate Otto are teaming up to bring Chicagoans the show they have been so craving. Both Lauren and Nate have amassed a dedicated following in their individual art careers and there’s no telling what will happen when their creative forces combine. Viewers can expect an interactive and unexpected show filled to the brim with artwork crafted with the audience in mind. Simply put, this is a show to be ENJOYED!! You will smile, you will giggle, you will gaze in wonderment and ponder how you made it so long without having this show stamped in your memory.
As always, two new in-store murals will be revealed at the opening reception along side with a completely new body of work from both artists. We’re anticipating a sold out show, so, please, get there early to reserve your piece! Out of town inquiries may contact info@ChicagoTruborn.com

About the artists:
Lauren Asta is a traveling muralist/artist who left her home base in San Francisco to follow her paint brush. She specializes in illustration, oddity art, doodle art, street art and murals. Her mural work has caught on like wildfire here in Chicago. If you somehow have not encountered one of her gigantic murals in West Town, Pilsen, or West Loop, perhaps you’ve seen her work in Chicago’s Google office, Blick, or at the 2017 Vans US Open of Surfing. Her murals are all hand painted without any aid of a sketch, projector, or traced outlined: She works completely free hand. Lauren has never shown work in Chicago before so be sure not to miss her highly anticipated debut.
Nate Otto is a Chicago based artist and illustrator. Primarily known for his dense and illustrative cityscapes on panels, Nate has developed multiple idiosyncratic painting styles of his own for years. He’s shown work in numerous established galleries all over the US and has recently completed projects for esteemed organizations who value creativity such as Facebook, Basecamp, Nike, The Distance, Northwestern University, Clif Bar, and Uprise.
