"Art is nothing without imagination and thoughtful play."
Jamie Andrews is British multimedia artist currently living in Suffolk. His work explores several genres - landscape, portrait, religious, political, social and satirical. His inspiration to become an artist stems from his family, particularly his father who was an art dealer, leading him to playfully draw, opening a whole new world of visual communication.
Inspiration from his Life Experiences
Andrews paints landscapes using his imagination, striving not for a vivid, realistic interpretation but more so based on his memories associated with these places and how they made him feel. “Brentor Church” was for example a standout recollection where he captured his intense feelings on a canvas. Alternatively, his portraits are based on Freud’s personality theory, where he uses the ID, ego and super-ego to make sense of the people around him.Read more
Adapting to his Emotions
Andrew’s paintings were initially used by the conventional observation technique and is now heavily influenced by his memory. He uses strong opaque colour which is either applied direct from the tube or with large trowels. Whilst cheerful, vibrant tones allow him to portray innocence and happiness, his work often has an underlying dark message, most recently relating to global social issues such as terrorism.
Jamie Andrews has established a reputation for himself in the UK, participating in Affordable Art Fair Hampstead London, the Cambridge Art Fair and the National Open Art Exhibition. His multi-media artistry is bound for international reach in the near future.Hide
