Richard Heller Gallery proudly introduces the works of Andrew Chuani Ho.
Ho's drawings depict a cast of vibrant characters and verdant environments that characterize a visual language that is working to assist the artist to chronicle experiences through storytelling. Ho vicariously inserts himself into performers in his narrative as the individuals navigate through conflicts that often parallel the artist's reality. In his inaugural solo show, Days and Days, Ho stages the inception of his narrative with a set of drawings that draw from a diverse range of influences, including the likes of Henry Darger, Henri Matisse and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Having a deeply spiritual upbringing, Ho's work exhibits the use of patterns, colors and symbols to reinterpret myths and fables of yore into meditatively drawn colored pencil drawings.
Ho was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1990. He received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, in 2013 and lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
