Canadian-born Andrew is attempting to redefine the legitimacy of digital art. His illustration and concept artwork strive to “come to life with a mystical sense of imagination and adventure, tinged with the classical aesthetic of the old masters.”
The award-winning artist has worked in the film industry, had his work exhibited internationally and has even been commissioned to paint the portraits of some of the world’s most influential politicians.
1 Abitbol Triplets “John Singer Sargent is one of my favourite painters and I composed this in his shadow, hoping to create a classical portrait. I snagged several fluffy costumes resembling a Sargent painting, posed my models and worked off a couple of photoshoots to capture the effect of twins interacting.”
2 Double Kill “This was one of the first times I successfully used photo reference. I can’t tell you how many awkward and strange things I’ve done to try and capture the perfect reference for an image. Though I’ve adopted a rule where I try not to kill any more friends for the sake of painting.”
3 The Legend of Tembo “It’s 300BC and Tembo takes charge of his Chinese army, ready to fight to the death. Here’s the last painting from my internship at Digital Domain FL – a turning point in my artistic journey. When the studio suddenly shut in 2012, 300 employees were forced to say goodbye to our little friend: Tembo, RIP”
4 Sick of Hiding (Tiger) “This was the first painting of my thesis at Ringling College. I’ve remastered this illustration every year since 2011. I plan to continue playing with it as the years go on – stay tuned.”
