Andy Rines is a Long Beach based painter and mixed media artist whose concepts are drawn from his impulses, desires, fears, dreams and love of camp. With an acute eye for detail and a visceral color pairing technique, Andy’s work is ripe with immediacy and experimentation. Art has always been a vital form of therapy for Andy; it is on the canvas where he is most articulate.
Most recently, Andy was involved in the Long Beach Peace Project where a community of artists came together to paint murals over the businesses boarded up in downtown Long Beach. His work has been exhibited throughout Los Angeles and published internationally.
