interview: Andrew Ordonez

Andrew Ordonez is an artist living and working in Kansas City, Missouri. He is a current resident of The Drugstore, a communal and collaborative studio space for artists located in Kansas City’s historic Katz Drugstore.

He primarily works in photo media, painting, sculpture and décollage. We caught up with Ordonez after the Young Latinx Artists 23 exhibition at Austin’s Mexic-Arte Museum, where his work was on display, to talk about migration, fragility, and symbolism in his recent work.
