Otino Corsano is new genre artist conceptually linked to the Los Angeles art scene. He combines and reconstructs commercial media into art forms to produce new meanings. Between 2003-2005, Otino Corsano collaborated with Pete Smith on a number of significant exhibitions featuring a fusion of free abstraction and institutional critique, text-based work. Although a founding member of the Toronto Alliance of Art Critics, Corsano views himself as an “artist who writes” as his artist interviews are an extension of his neo-conceptual practice. His art writings and interviews are published in artUS magazine (LA), ARTPOST, Akimblog and his own blog. He has taught at the University of Toronto and is a Sessional Instructor at OCAD University.
