Ottograph, a large-scale muralist, has been slinging paint since the age of ten. Starting out in Amsterdam, where he is from, and then moving on to become an internationally sought after artist, Ottograph has established himself squarely in the middle of the global street and graffiti art movement. Simultaneously though, Ottograph has bridged the fine art gap with his work, an advantage that comes with age and time dedicated to painting. The Modern Art Museum of Antwerpen (Belgium) is home to a giant Ottograph mural. Otto also painted murals in Moscow, Tokyo, Berlin and San Fancisco. Ottograph's contribution to street art extends beyond his own work, as he is also a community leader, having organized several cooperative painting commissions and operating the website "I Paint Everyday" ipainteveryday.com to encourage the tedious, yet necessary practice of serious painting.

A cult figure amongst skaters and graffiti artists, Ottograph's drawings, paintings, and mixed-media installations take their inspiration from contemporary urban culture, incorporating elements such as empty cardboard boxes, tagged signs, wrenches, and scrap wood or metal. Ottograph is also known as 'the lean mean painting machine'.
