Andrew has been hailed as one of the most promising young figurative painters working today. Saatchi Art calls him "one to invest in now"; critic Edward Lucie Smith says he is a "dazzlingly skillful advocate [for painting]”; Tony Godfrey (author, Phaidon's Painting Today) calls him an "exciting artist with a particular vision"; and he is a "rising star" according to London's Evening Standard.
He’s also a passionate advocate of DRM’s vital work tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in UK schools:
I work with a number of charities, but something about DRM seems immediately relevant, and carries a personal weight for me. A lot of us creative types were (and are) bullied as children for being gay, for being weird, for being dreamers. I believe that DRM is an important organization because they stand for a message that I fervently support: believe in yourself; its okay to be gay, weird, and a dreamer. You'll find your way and we're here to prove that there is a network of support for you. Celebrate who you are!
