Andy is currently working on a series of narrative portraits based on people who live in Coventry. The paintings will celebrate the heritage, lives and memories of 12 residents from Coventry. Each will include both a portrait element as well as portraying aspects of the person’s life and experience of Coventry. Some have lived all their lives in the city; others came to find sanctuary or employment.
The works will be exhibited as part of Coventry City of Culture 2021 at the Arcadia Gallery in the city centre in September. This project is being supported by Orbit Housing.
Andy is an award-winning artist with a strong interest in mental health and wellbeing. He describes himself as a storyteller. He likes the audience to wonder what may have happened, be happening or what might come to pass. In addition to narrative portraits, Andy takes inspiration from nature and sport.
