«I stood in awe in front of Picasso’s Guernica and vowed to carve out a career out in the painting. This forced me to create every day or, to put it bluntly, I wouldn’t eat. I’m an oil painter aiming to explore the human condition, and creativity itself as best as I can. No more, no less!»
Born and raised in Tasmania, a small island state in Australia, Andrew’s career in art stems from growing up with an abundance of encouragement and support from his family and friends to pursue his passion for creativity.
Andrew’s love for his craft is evident through his diverse range of styles, and range of work. With a strong social media presence thanks to celebrities such as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Sir Paul McCartney, and Ice Cube among many others sharing the artist’s portraits. His work has extended to include original pieces for a number of high profile NBA players, business people, and celebrities.
Andrew is a completely self-taught oil painter, and is now working full time as a professional artist living by his mantra – a day without creativity is a day wasted!
