On Saturday, Esao Andrews opened up his latest exhibition at Jonathan Levine Gallery with a new body of work consisting of some of his largest paintings to date. Utilizing his signature mix of creative story telling and darkly laid out characters/compositions, Mr. Andrews entertained the audience with a rich and complex show. Some paintings are hauntingly beautiful while others deceptively twisted. Regardless of your initial impression, it’s always worth it to take a second look at his works. You’ll be as surprised as us on […]

Better make plans to stop by Jonathan Levine Gallery this Saturday. Esao Andrews will open his latest solo show, “Solid Void”, along with peer Alex Gross (interviewed) and his solo show. The darkly imaginative artist continues to explore the confines of his talented imagination. His use of colors to compliment his ultra fine brush work is something that has to be seen in person. After his last sold out show at JLG a few years ago and his most recent show at Thinkspace last year, […]
This Saturday night, August 7th, Thinkspace Gallery will be hosting “Love Conquers All”, a group show supporting the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) struggle with 20% of the proceeds donated to Equality California. Looking through the preview, there really are some pretty strong pieces in this show from many of the artists that we cover here on AM. Take a look at a full list of the artists as well as more preview pics after the jump…
Earlier this month, Last Rites Gallery in New York hosted “Lead Poisoning”, a group show that included a surprisingly strong list of participants. Artists like David Stoupakis, Eric White (interviewed), Glenn Barr, Ron English (featured), Chet Zar, Esao Andrews (interviewed), Chris Mars, Greg Simkins (interviewed), Robert Williams, Brian Despain (interviewed) and many others contributed drawings to exhibition. Add in a solo show from Jason D’Aquino, who seems to work exclusively in graphite, and the evening was complete. Take a look at all the openings pics […]

It’s been a while since Esao Andrews has had a major show and for his many fans, it’s long overdue. Since his showing with Roq La Rue last May, he’s been relatively off the grid – most likely getting ready for this year’s show “Farewell Avery” at Thinkspace, opening TONIGHT. It seems like it has been time well spent because this new body of work took our breath away. Even though we teased you with a peak at “The Conjoined Bell”, we had no idea […]
Esao Andrews is bringing his own special brand of gothic and grotesque surrealism to Silverlake gallery Thinkspace in October with a solo show. Here is a glimpse of his new body of work where we can see a wonderfully multicolored and dynamic edge of a dress in a large piece entitled “The Conjoined Bell” on his easel. We are sure his fans looking forward to seeing more of this show developing, but for now, take a look at the concept sketch for this piece after […]
