Andrew Petterson’s artwork has been hailed as “pure, raw and refreshing”, an accurate summation of the artist himself. Petterson, a Boise, Idaho native, personifies creativity, sharing his original and imaginative ideas with the world through his unique and admired art.

Much like his hand built fixed-gear track bikes (which serve as his primary mode of transport), Andrew’s pedals are constantly spinning. The son of two teachers, Petterson grew up learning the worth of character, tolerance, sincerity and passion and he portrays these values in delicate detail and skill through a variety of mediums.

Post high school, Petterson migrated east to New Hampshire for a stint at the storied Blue Lodge, an abandoned ski area in the heart of the White Mountains. While snowboarding with an eclectic group of nomads, Andrew questioned and explored every perspective possible and took his art in a new direction. The next chapter brought Petterson to Bend, Oregon, where he delved into world of graffiti and aerosol artwork. But the scene that may have influenced Petterson the most-personally, as well as artistically-is Japan. Working at a mountain resort on a 90-day visa stay, he was inspired by the Japanese spirit, by its people and art. Petterson was so moved by the culture he returned the following year, immersing himself in the country and bringing its ethos back to his art.

In 2005, Petterson landed a prestigious gig painting with world-renowned hot rod builder Chip Foose at Foose Design in Southern California. The move brought Petterson closer to Oakley headquarters, where he met artist Hans Moritz. When not painting in the Foose garage, Petterson is studying under Moritz, exploring new mediums and innovative techniques to push his art ever further.
