Andro Wekua

Biography

Through his photographs and sculptures, Andro Wekua pieces together fragmented fictions pictorially representing no-where worlds of mystery and intrigue. Born in Georgia and living in Europe, Wekua often bases his work on his childhood memories, his hometown now a prohibited area. Black Sea Surfer straddles both Eastern and Western aesthetic: its geometric layout and high contrast photography resembles Communist design, while at the same time conveying sense of 60s chic and b-movie kitsch. His collaged images give cinematic flair, providing potential cast, setting, and narrative for viewers’ interpretation, subtly entwining their personal references with his own.
