Andrew Hird is a painter of city and maritime landscapes, his work focusing purely on celebrating the world around us. He presents images that reveal moments of observation that we feel familiar with but often pass unnoticed in busy and distracted lives. All his work is from personal experience and starts with location sketches in pencil or paint. These plein air studies provide the working material for his studio paintings, always referring back to the inspiration of standing in the environment.
Light, line and perspective provide the structure for much of Andrew’s work. Whether it be the reflections in a rain-washed cityscape, the far reaching views and open skies of the English coast, or the warmth of an Italian landscape, he paints to share his personal world and hopefully transmit some of the pleasure he finds in recording it.
Andrew holds regular solo exhibitions in London, and has exhibited at the Mall Galleries, Chelsea Art Society, Patchings Festival, Royal Society of Marine Artists and Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He has won various awards and his work is becoming increasingly popular with pieces in collections around the UK and as far afield as New York, Canada and California.
