May & June - PJ Andrews
PJ Andrews was born in Boston. Although his immediate influences are Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, PJ's animated work, however, comes straight from the source - cartoons and cartoon characters. PH is self taught in the folk art tradition, where his sensibilities blend the world of contemporary pop and folk art with exuberance and flair.
Though simple to the point of elegant, PJ's "diamond dust" efforts offer a new dimension never befor realized within animation art. As he believes characters such as Bugs andSuperman to be larger than life, PJ accents his rendition of these characters with glitter.
Unprecedented as PJ's artwork is, the result is nothing less than stunning. While the characters used to explore his technique are often large profiles, his employment of glitter creates an atmosphere in which they seem nearly three dimensional. Literally, it looks as if his characters rise from the canvas.
