 ‘Painted Lives

These inspirational films follow the lives or background of the chosen subjects in a series of Andrew’s recent paintings. Andrew’s love of painting people whilst conveying a true understanding their lives, character and background is clearly evident in his work.  This passion along with his interest in film making has enabled him to explore this in his series of films, ‘Painted Lives’ in which we follow the inspiration and backstory of the subject in his paintings.  The journey, understanding and thoughtfulness in watching and learning about the person and their life in the film truly intensifies the atmosphere, character and emotion in Andrew’s painting.
