Andrew Holmes - painter

Andrew Holmes is a figurative painter currently based in London. After gaining a Degree in graphic arts, he worked as a freelance illustrator collaborating on commercial projects in advertising, design, TV and film, until 2008 when he returned to his passion of painting. Holmes’ experience in design influences his art practice which is centred around an interest in contemporary painting, visual culture and aesthetic appreciation.

Art without Boundaries

Using art as a space for investigation, Holmes does not confine himself to a specific style or subject. His subjects vary from the sensuous undertones in his satirical still life paintings to an implicit portrayal of gender, sexuality or ethnic ambiguity in the young women pieces. Similarly, while the bather pieces depict quiet reflection, Holmes’ abstract work is not thematic and instead is the result of a focus on cognitive and technical processes.

An Established Process

Holmes’ ideas come from a visualisation and emotional experience or memory. To create the preparatory work, he makes drawings, sketches and photographs and then experiments with treatments and compositions. Once a piece is planned, the subject and content always dictate the technique or approach he will take.

Widely Recognised British Artist

Andrew Holmes has displayed his work widely across the UK, including: the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, the National Open Art Competition, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the New English Art Club. Already exhibiting in Miami and Hong Kong, he has taken the next step towards establishing his international career.
