Upcoming: Andrew Hem – “Leap” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

After some impressive shows on the West Coast, Andrew Hem (interviewed) will be moving east for his next solo show. Leap opens on May 14th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York and will feature the Los Angeles-based artist’s surreal otherworldly scenes painted with a vivid palette of blues, greens, reds, and splashes of golden light. The first image we have seen from the new body of work was recently shared by the artist with Cambodian heritage and it left us wanting more… Discuss Andrew Hem here.
