Born in 1977, Andrew Sendor lives and works in New York. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2000. Sendor’s work is characterized by a meticulous draftsmanship that illuminates his ongoing engagement with the interrelation of photorealism and invented narrative structures. His first solo at Sperone Westwater took place in 2013 and was followed by shows in 2015 and 2017. In 2015, MSU Broad Art Museum presented “Andrew Sendor: Paintings, Drawings and a Film.” Most recently, his work was the subject of the two-person exhibition “Micro-Macro: Andrew Sendor and Ali Banisadr” at MOCA Jacksonville (2019). His works have been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the Nassau County Museum of Art, NY; Funen Art Museum, Odense, Denmark; Hudson Valley MOCA, Peekskill, NY; Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO; and the ARKEN Museum of Art, Ishøj, Denmark.
