The Art Of Andrew Hem

Andrew Hem's work is heavy on the surrealism, featuring his distinctly elongated figures introspectively frozen in thought in the strange, otherworldly realms they inhabit. His work takes notes from his own past and present, from his parents fleeing Cambodia due to their Khmer ancestry to his upbringing in the dynamic, urban art capital, Los Angeles.

His pieces, created using gouache, oil and acrylic speak of what once was and hazy memories of a past and childhood destroyed by civil strife. Andrew has had a successful run in the gallery circuit, and continues to refine his distinct style as he goes. More of his thought provoking work after the break.
