From the OCMA bio:

Andy Ralph was born 1982 in Lake Arrowhead, CA, and earned his BA in Visual Arts (2004) from Point Loma Nazarene University. Often employing basic household objects and products typically found in discount or hardware stores, he transforms individual, unassuming commodities with a humble function into the most improbable things. Ralph’s work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions at the Society of Arts & Crafts in Boston; Aqua Art Wynwood, Miami; Castle House Gallery Poulsbo, WA; Phantom Gallery, Long Beach, CA, and in San Diego, CA at Spacecraft Gallery, Luis De Jesus Seminal Projects, and The Museum of Contemporary Art; among other venues. He lives and works in San Diego and is represented by Luis De Jesus Los Angeles.
