Andrew Schoultz is an SF-based artist who uses murals, paintings, installations & drawings to tell stories about everyday life in America, filtering political commentary thought the forms of graffiti, art and underground comics. Schoultz loves doing large multimedia installations as well as murals and various work in the streets of America and abroad.
Does the artist's intent matter if the audience doesn't get what the intent was? Andrew discusses this, his obsessive complusive artistic process and more in this video interview! Schoultz was featured on Scion's Installation 5 art tour and recently curated the Infinity show at their Culver City gallery.

Kaiju invaded San Francisco last weekend and set up shop in North Beach at Double Punch's upstairs gallery. Some might say that the Bay Area is already a pretty monster-friendly place, and Mark Nagata whose Max Toy Co is locally operated would agree. Mark was joined by Massachusetts-based invader Matt Walker of Dead Presidents and duel Japanese raiders, Ichimiya-san from SUNGUTS and Yajima-san from Dream Rocket. Together, the talented and wacky quartet filled the small space with brilliant colors, copious customs...and not a single Dunny in sight. All unsold work from the show will make its way to Ningyoushi. Lots of closeups, commentary, what I bought and your opportunity to correct any kaiju-specific faux pas (you know you want to) with the rest of the story HERE.
NemO just sent over a really cool video he put together that covers the custom Qee show titled "Qee2Life" that went down at Genuine Artikle this past Saturday, 12.12.09! Not only is it well edited, but it really gives you some flavor of what the event was about! Thanks for the video man!
Monster 41 is a dandy one. Just look at the well-tailored sweater and the snazzy pinstripe pants. And 41 knows how to move? Is he a dancer? A racer? A percussionist? Or a grape stomper? And what's with his face? Does he have a great, big laugh? Or a marvelous moustache? A giant nose and beard? What is his story? I can't wait to find out from you! Because you always have the scoop! And you're always nice enough to share it with the whole class! You're so cool! 344 LOVES YOU!
