Leading up to the show we will be introducing you to each artist participating in the show.
catmandru! – San Francisco, CA – Zodiac Sign Chosen – Tiger and Rabbit
Andrew Uy (catmandru!) an artist based in San Mateo, California. During my childhood, I have always loved animals and drawing. My mother and uncle Alfonso inspired me to develop my artistic skills at an early age. This love of art soon manifested into a hobby which I would draw my friends into characters.
The earliest catmandru! art began as doodles on napkins and post-its. My two cats, Satine and Aspen, provided me with unlimited material which established the foundation for what catmandru! is now.
In early 2009, catmandru! was showcased at Sweet Breams, in San Mateo, California. Initially hesitant in showing my artwork to the general public, my friends quickly dissolved any doubts with their constant encouragements and continual support.
In short, I love cats. I love to draw. Drawing cats are my M.O.
