Instagram Takeover: Andrew Hem


This week the @Booooooom Instagram account is being handed over to artist Andrew Hem. I’ve been following Andrew’s work for some time now, so it’s a real treat to have him take the reins.

The LA-based painter has a solo show opening at Merry Karnowsky Gallery on March 8th so maybe we’ll see some sneak peeks of work for that show. Follow along on our account and be sure to follow Andrew’s personal account.
