"In many ways my artwork today is still my attempt to find a balance between painting and graphic processes"
- Andrew Weir
Andrew Weir enjoys creating an interplay between recognisable and abstract forms, the familiar and the foreign. In collages of paint layers, motifs, found objects, and text, Weir expresses his fascination for the conflicting and transient ideas that compose our systems of communication. The artist's paintings fuse traditional and contemporary method and approach in an impactful, graphic whole.
Andrew Weir was born in Scotland and studied at Gray's School of Art and The Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts in The Netherlands. He has exhibited in North America, Europe, Australia & Asia, and has traveled extensively — experiences which reflect in his work exploring symbolism. His work is held in private collections around the world.
