Digital Art by Andy Walker
Andy Walker (b.1990), originally from Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, works as a full time professional, digital artist in Brighton.
His work, inspired by his own photographs, ranges from impressionistic to photo-realistic, consisting of intricate mosaics of individually hand-drawn triangles, each painstakingly placed, shaped and meticulously coloured.
Using a tablet as a 'canvas' affords Andy the freedom to shape every triangle and to select hues and tones precisely. This original technique adds depth and intensity of colour, dramatically enhancing the work.
His portfolio includes a recent series of pieces depicting all five villages of the Cinque Terre, Italy, Landscapes across the UK and Europe, Botanical Studies, and Op-Art inspired abstract works.
Constantly in demand to exhibit in Art events, Andy's first London event was an invitation to exhibit at the Saatchi Gallery in the Start Art Fair (Sept 2017) since when he has been in great demand to exhibit throughout the UK and Europe.
Andy's debut UK Solo Exhibition is in Brighton during July 2018, with another planned in Italy in 2019.
This view of Haytor, Dartmoor, portrays rapidly changing weather viewed across the edge of the moors, evoking a dramatic moment for the solitary figure atop the tor. The picture is an intricate mosaic of thousands of individually hand-drawn triangles, each painstakingly placed, shaped and meticulously coloured. Using a stylus and tablet, using a computer as a canvas, Andy creates and shapes every triangle with precision and to select each exact hue and tone. All the artwork originates from Andy's own photographs, used as a reference for colour and perspective.
