      Logo mania

      In his new show, called brand, Vancouver-based multimedia artist Andre Petterson cleverly captures the ubiquitous global-corporation logos that emblazon billboards, posters, and signage in far-off corners of the earth. The artist works by combining elements of photography, painting, and drawing, all driven by his wide travels. The effect is imagery that’s by turns absurd, humorous, and downright scary, as Colonel Sanders (see Chicken, here), the Starbucks siren, and the omnipresent Coca-Cola logo take over the world.

      Brand is at the Bau-Xi Gallery from April 14 to 28 as part of the Capture Photography Festival.
