Andre Petterson is a talented local artist whose recent multi-media work has been rooted in photography. In his upcoming September show, Transition, Petterson ‘explores the contentious symbolism of the suit jacket.’ It is a show inspired by serious, Neoclassical buildings in Buenos Aires that have been overlaid with politically pointed graffiti. Petterson represents this idea of an uprising against the establishment with his Sumi-e type painting on a Westernized suit jacket.
Petterson’s show will run at the Bau-xi between September 10th and the 22nd. In the meantime, Petterson is letting us in on some of his Vancouver favourites.
