GUEST ARTIST ANDREW RODA

As a western realist artist often painting subjects larger than life, Andrew’s use of light, high-contrast settings and attention to detail create a cinematic feel that seems to jump off the canvas. With much of his career background in film producing and finance in Los Angeles, CA, it’s no surprise the work feels like a still shot from an old western film. Initially a hobby artist selling his pieces to folks in the entertainment industry, Andrew actually gifted two paintings to Tim Burton and Johnny Depp after working on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Andrew’s fascination with and appreciation for old western culture resides in its juxtaposition of raw beauty with austerity and the challenges that such a life in that time presented.
