Animals, fascists, hipsters, aliens, primordial ooze and other characters are repeating motifs in Leo’s surreal, psychedelic and philosophical paintings and drawings.

A self-taught photographer, Andrew learned his craft from his father, a commercial photographer in Rochester, NY, and through avid reading and study of photographers like Andre Kertesz, Robert Frank, Bruce Davidson, and others. About his own work Andrew says, “I try not to approach my subjects with preconceived ideas of what I will see. I let the moment tell the story.” Read more about Andrew’s 2019 exhibition here.
