“Petrichor” by Artist Esao Andrews

A collection of surreal and darkly stylized work by one of our favs, Japanese American artist, Esao Andrews (previously featured here). Presented by Thinkspace, “Petrichor” offers a mid-career retrospective for the Arizona native, showcasing over a dozen iconic works, never-before-seen sketches, skateboard decks and a site-specific mural. Drawn to ideas of homecoming and departure, Andrew’s penchant for revisiting past characters and thematic elements has helped to create a sense of narrative continuity throughout his diverse archive.

See more images below or on display at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, the show opens May 10 (7-10pm) and runs until August 4.
