I've been on a road trip and missed the opportunity to post about a great show that opened in Toronto last week. Did you see it? It's by my friends, Andrew Hem and Tessar Lo. This show encompasses the continuation of Tessar Lo's whimsical yet experimental discovery of ones own identity (read his interview with Art Investigator, Amanda Erlanson). Coinciding Mr. Lo's solo efforts is the introduction of Andrew Hem's unique artwork to the citizens of Canada. Andrew produced art that includes sculptural works alongside graffiti-inspired stencils which replicates his painting style remarkably well. Go see them both!
Andrew Hem's: "Building From The Ground Up" and Tessar Lo's "MAPS"
