[ TORONTO EDITION ]
San Francisco artist Andres Amadors’ work has been featured on CNN International, the BBC, KQED Arts, CGTN America, The Discovery Channel and more. He has been the subject of the full-length documentary “Between Worlds” by award winning Director Brad Kremer. The film was the winner of Best Documentary at the 2017 Fort Myers Beach Film Festival, winner of the Focus Arts award at the 2017 Orlando Film Festival, and winner of the Environmental Feature at the Santa Cruz Film Festival. His past commissioned work includes Google, Red Bull, Barefoot Wines, Synergy Kombucha, Adobe, Subaru, The Weather Channel and more. He was artistically inspired at an early age by the large-scale murals that surrounded him in the Mission district during his childhood. After graduating in Environmental Sciences from UC Davis, Andres served in the Peace Corps in Ecuador, where he developed conservation education curricula for rural schools. Upon returning from his tour, he began exploring the art scene of San Francisco which led him to re-visit his passion for art. His earthscape murals on the beach can span over 100,000 feet (~35,000 sqmt), achievable only during low tide. With tight time constraints and big goals, exploring this concept of self-creation has brought Andres to investigate natural and human-devised systems of structure and growth. His artworks do not last long as within minutes of finishing a piece, and often while still in progress, the returning tide begins resetting the canvas.
