Meet an Artist: North Shore Newbies!
This summer, the North Shore studio welcomed Marcelo Añón and Andrew Sautel (pictured above L to R) to our community. Both gentlemen are prolific art makers with lots of ideas and an intense creative drive. They’ve spent the past few months settling into studio life, learning about our Core Values and developing new bodies of work. Marcelo’s primary focus is geometric line work, with a tendency towards urban imagery. Andrew enjoys portraiture and working in mixed media. Check out the gallery below for images of these artists at work. Here’s what they had to say when asked about their creative practice:tAofL: How do you describe your style?Andrew: Very creative and most likely artistic.
