The Instagram Art of Mathu Andersen “is my odd interior world of light and shadow, gods and monsters,” Mathu tells LAist of his upcoming show at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery. “A place where villains are sympathetic and the heroes are idiots.”
Andersen has many stunning images to choose from, and when it came to selecting which would be featured in his show, he admits it was “a bit of a trial.”
“Initially, I was rather cavalier about the whole process,” he told LAist. “However, when it came to the crunch, it was not easy to be objective about my own image. After a couple of days of unbecoming petulant behavior, I settled for a mix of images that were popular and images that were personal and particular to me. I did wonder how the images would work outside of the context of Instagram. Hopefully, I have chosen well.”
The gallery event is hosted by RuPaul and Svedka Vodka, who will be providing specialty cocktails. There will also be beer from ABK Beer, Zevia soda, and Sprinkles Cupcakes.
