Otto Hiist (O.Hiisi) .born 1995, lives and works between far south coast NSW and regional northern VIC. Infuenced by the natural landscape of these places, be it Barmah state forest on the Murray river or Gulaga national park with its forests and beaches, the work in its relatively simple structure and execution aims to emulate the rawness and texture of these environments.

" It was important to me to create a solid and recognisable style. The themes explored through the parameters of this style are varied but with an aim towards minimalism and the representation of an image in its most simple form. I look to nature and the human experience in the work and take lessons from many artists and artforms past and present."
