Andrew Anderson was born in Mexico City from an American father and a Panamanian mother. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting from The University of Texas and has since established himself as a promising and practicing artist in Austin. Anderson utilizes a reductive aesthetic in his art. His fields of colors, while often formally creating multiple depths or planes, are the fundamental terms of his philosophy. These terms provide the platform for his visual language, not incomparable to a tabula rasa. The palette is not blank though; the platform consists of pure color where external noise has been erased from the language. What is left, this language of color? Blocks, chunks, merely matter undressed for the innate mind to interpret intuitively. This philosophy is the necessary achievement of his form. Consider how marketers and the media bombard our eyes and sensibilities. Consider the cultural iconoclasm this bombardment creates. Andrew gives us a reprieve, time to ponder.
What is a Changarrito?
The Changarrito is an alternative platform where artist can display and sell their artwork. This art movement that began in Mexico City has roots stemming from Pre-Colombian street vending practices.
There are multiple Changarrito carts circulating throughout the world, with the same objective of promoting original artwork to the general public. 100% of the proceeds on purchased artworks, go directly to the artist.
