Born in 1981, in New Jersey, USA. Lives and works in Philadelphia, PA

Andy Rementer, through his figurative oil paintings, works on paper, and sculptures, depicts anything and everything he sees around him and condenses it into his brightly colorful yet mysterious visual world. His statue-esque characters hold a host of feelings that seem to suspend emotion, while inviting the viewer into various pensive moments. Rementer enjoys observing ordinary life while reducing what he sees using few details and carefully placed essential elements from his imagination.

Inspired by a range of art history references from Giotto to Léger, Rementer’s organized compositions seem both real and surreal at the same time. The subtle gradients of his oil paintings enhance the richness and unease that lies underneath. Interiors and cityscapes are often backdrops for much of Rementer's colorful scenes as we are left to wonder about the lives and inner thoughts of his subjects.

Besides exhibiting in the United States, Rementer has participated in numerous shows in Asia and Europe, including South Korea, Japan, England, France and Germany. He has exhibited at Everyday Mooonday Gallery, Seoul (2021), Fondazione Benetton, Treviso (2017), Commune Gallery, Tokyo (2015), Somerset House, London (2014), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2006).
