Andy Mayers – My Artistic Practice and Techniques

Andy Mayers has worked as a graphic designer for 36 years. Fine art activities have always featured alongside his graphic work and both areas have influenced each other. He works in a number of mediums, traditional painting and drawing as well as digital painting utilising skills developed as a designer. More recently he has created a number of sculptures in steel as public memorials.

A recent series of works  features  portraits of people involved in protests. Titled ‘Common Cause’, the images focus on the concerned faces of a cross section of society united by their concerns about the economy, climate and conflict. Viewers are invited to look into the protesters’ eyes to empathise and connect with their experience of contemporary challenges.
