Andrew Hem: Refuge

Andrew Hem: Refuge

Dorothy Circus Gallery London is delighted to present “Refuge” the first UK solo-exhibition by Andrew Hem, painter and street artist, born in Cambodia and raised in Los Angeles.
The exhibition will feature 15 brand new paintings that will carry the DCG’s viewer into a deep reflection on the meaning of unity. 
Into a journey between memories and dreamscape through his iconic figurative style, Andrew Hem involves us in his experience as refuge, making us all part of his survival.
The iconic figurative style of Andrew Hem, which combines a vivid colour palette with luminous loose brushstrokes, has gained him great national recognition in the USA and in Europe.
Once again, Hem's compositions are evocative landscapes of the city and nature, where introspective protagonists observe themselves and the viewer. The artist draws on the influence of impressionism and surrealistic techniques to create a unique, yet captivating work. In this new series, the colour palette takes on richer and warmer shades than before —resulting in an even more dreamy atmosphere that coexists with elements of realism and surrealism immortalised through impressionist brushstrokes.
Andrew Hem is a traveller that paints both from observation and memory. In an increasingly globalised world, his works is founded on the need to understand the transience and fluidity of cultures from around the globe. Because of his dual Asian and American background and his numerous journeys, Hem is able to offer insight into this phenomenon as he documents people’s experiences within their respective urban and natural environments around the world and particularly in Asia, depicting scenes through an international lens while paying close attention to cultural intersections and transversal spheres. 
The artist also touches on the aspect of social interaction as part of humanity’s experience.
