About the Artist
Andrew Hansen is a very mellow and talented artist who was born and raised in San Diego. He is an Undergraduate student in the School of Art’s of Drawing & Painting Program that commutes to CSULB each week all the way from San Diego, it is his third year and will hopefully be graduating next spring. His interest include oil paintings and sculptures even though he prefers sculptures and has a current project going on being made out of recyclables he finds randomly. His work is mainly figurative because he claims a lot of his work is about realism.
The art piece I was able to see that Andrew created was called Why Not? He didn’t have an exact title for it so he made one up randomly. The painting was of a bar scene from his perspective because he is a bouncer for a bar in down town San Diego. The people in the painting were all people he knew, good friends and relatives
