Andrew King

Andrew King is one of my favourite Ottawa artists, so when I started blogging, I knew he'd be the first artist I wrote about. Fate had it, he was travelling, -- probably picking up tons of inspiration along the way ---, but tonight I'm finally bringing you some of his work. The pieces shown here are unfortunately sold, but they do show what a terrific sense of humour and social commentary he brings to his creations. And, if you're interested in seeing more, Andrew's work is currently available at the Terence Robert Gallery on Sussex Drive www.terencerobertgallery.com/site/index.html or the Cube Gallery near Parkdale Market. You also can go to www.andrewkingstudio.com to see more examples of sold works.

Here are "Attack of the Minto Bots", "American Water Shortage", and "Not So Smart" (all acrylic done on canvas). I think you'll see what I mean about his sense of humour ...

Me too! And I especially like the guy jumping off the diving board into an empty pool. Classic Andrew King!
