We’re super excited that Andy Skinner the master of all things mixed media is joining us here at Hochanda! Make sure you catch Andy’s shows this Tuesday night at 8pm and again on Wednesday at 9am, 12pm, 4pm & 7pm - these shows are ones not to be missed!
Andy Skinner is an established mixed media artist and tutor who teaches regular workshops all over the world and now he’s coming to Hochanda to teach YOU in the comfort of your own home!
Andy is an accomplished painter and ceramicist but is best known for his ‘industrial gothic’ altered art and assemblage pieces. His unique style is edgy, dark, and enigmatic, pushing the boundaries of the medium with new and innovative techniques.
Born and raised in Oxford, England, Andy was interested in art from a young age and the influence of his parents is obvious in his artistic style. His mother, a watercolour artist, encouraged Andy’s love of paints, while his father, an engineer with a knack for constructing amazing toys and gadgets from found objects, inspired the quirky and 3D elements of his altered art pieces.
Since giving up his successful ceramics business, Andy has immersed himself in the mixed media world he loves. He works as Executive Creative Consultant for DecoArt Inc, using his expertise to develop their innovative Media line of products, and is also a product designer for Stampendous and Tando Creative.
"I am very excited to be joining Hochanda to share some of my mixed media techniques and hopefully bring something a little different to the table."
Here is a sneaky peek of just some of the inspirational demonstrations to come during his shows;
Don't miss Andy's amazing DecoArt shows on Tuesday 30th August at 8pm and on Wednesday 31st August at 9am, 12pm, 4pm & 7pm as he shows you how to use his amazing new stencils and all of the DecoArt range!
