Andrew Schoultz
Broken Formality (Grey)

2014

About

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Schoultz became a professional skateboarder before moving to San Francisco in 1998, where the vocabulary of his outdoor murals - wooden war horses, limb-less trees, erupting volcanoes, tornadoes, clouds of flying arrows - has become an important part of the urban fabric in the Mission District and beyond. This vocabulary extends to paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations that have been featured in exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States. Schoultz utilizes a signature style of densely-packed, meticulously-rendered motifs - archaic war machines, the iconography of the American Dollar bill, and cataclysmic events, both natural and man-made - to represent the turmoil of the contemporary world. He makes historic references to antique etchings and Persian miniature painting as well as to William T. Wiley, M. C. Escher and Mission School street art. But Schoultz's art is very much his own - an intense vision of a planet threatened by overcrowding and overconsumption and societies under siege by the governments that are there to protect them.
