I’m not certain that I “get” all of Andy Kehoe's meaning, but I definitely find myself approaching his work with the curious intrigue and careful consideration of an anthropolgist. This Pittsburg-based artist's sensibilities for graphic narrative, icon, pattern and color represent a refreshing generation of folk art. Each piece is like a modern day fable, rooted in both tradition and invention—feeling in the same moment familiar, yet new. Kehoe has a sense of humor and a sense of self, producing pictographs that are as light and as heavy as life itself, all the while beautiful.
You can find affordable prints in his etsy shop.
