The wonderful Andrew Sutherland

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Andrew Sutherland was born in Oranjemund, South West Africa in early 1982. He moved to England with his family at the age of 11 where he spent his early teenage years. At the age of 16 Andrew moved to Cape Town and after finishing school enrolled at The Ruth Prowse School of Art in Woodstock. He obtained his Diploma in Fine Art in 2004 and in 2005 began working as an artist’s assistant for a local abstract artist.

In 2008 Sutherland entered the art scene in Cape Town, having his first group show at Salon 91, followed soon after with a solo show in early 2009.

Andrew enjoys working in a variety of mediums from watercolors, ink and fine liners on paper to acrylic, spray-paint and charcoal on canvas. His work often evokes a narrative, with soft dream like undertones. Running themes include exploration and discovery with a strong interest in nature and the great outdoors.
