The paintings and mixed-media works of Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Chapman explore abstraction, texture and unusual form in various representations. Distorting the surfaces of his compositions, Chapman creates optical illusions and otherworldly arrangements. He has shown work at a number of galleries and educational institutions including solo shows at Et al. and California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Group exhibitions include Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, Portmanteau, Geneva, Switzerland, The Popular Workshop, San Francisco, and San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco. In 2011 he was awarded the Jack & Gertrude Murphy Fellowship and the Edwin Anthony & Adelaine Bordeaux Cadogan Fellowship in the Fine Arts.
