Andro Semeiko paints single everyday objects in a deadpan illustrative manner, their meaning and relation becomes a matter of open surreal speculation, often involving a more or less oblique absurdist humour, this he carries further in paintings of medieval knights, for instance, flying spaceships. … These gleefully frivolous artworks refuse seriousness, reflecting and engendering seriously playful relations in the world.
