Andrew Schoultz’s art is filled with chaotic imagery, expressing a rather dystopian vision through a variety of techniques, from sculpture to collage, street art to installations to paintings. Featured here on our blog, his eclectic work cultivates an arsenal of personal symbolism: fragments of dollar bills, fractured Grecian urns, ripped American flags, war horses, and slave ships are just a few of the symbols he uses to juxtapose Western culture with allusions to conflict and exploitation.

We recently reviewed Andrew Schoultz’s solo show at Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco, “Blown to Bits,” where he reflected on the chaos of world events through an apocalyptic lens. This past week, Empire Seven Studios commissioned Schoultz to do a mural in San Jose, CA that touches upon some of the same themes. Schoultz is an artist with his personal arsenal of symbolic motifs. In viewing his work across various media — from street art to installations to paintings — cohesive ideas begin to emerge through the recurring imagery. Schoultz juxtaposes symbols of wealth and grandeur — like Grecian vases, tigers, gold coins, and ships — with chaotic line work that resembles explosions. His work signals at a civilization in decline, mired by its own greed and hubris.

Andrew Schoultz’s take on painting is decidedly organic; he builds up forms by aggregating individual brushstrokes that weave like the curves of a thumb print or curly locks in an unkempt mane of hair. Figurative elements emerge as repeating characters — like the dark horse — that hint at an occult symbolism beneath the surface. Tonight, Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City will host the opening reception for Andrew Schoultz’s solo exhibition, “In Process,” which is on view at the Monterey Museum of Art. Featuring a survey of Schoultz’s small-scale works as well as immersive installations, the exhibition shows off Schoultz’s creative versatility. Take a look at our sneak peek of the installations in progress below and see “In Process” at the Monterey Museum through November 17. See more after the jump!

Currently showing at Toronto’s Copper Cole Gallery is a two person exhibition ‘Destroyer’ featuring new works from artists Andrew Schoultz and Richard Colman . This pairing illuminates the similarities between the two artists’ graphic line works and bold colors, as well as their preoccupations with social elements and woodland landscapes. Featuring dark horses, grim reapers and a psychedelic color palette the exhibition explores a convergence of death, sexuality and the beauty of nature heralded under the dark exhibition title.
