Lives and works in: Cornwall, UK
To Purchase Contact: Andrew Litten
Andrew Litten was born in 1970, Aylesbury UK. An interest in expressionist art led him to evening classes in life drawing whilst still at school. He began Art College but found it a restricting and claustrophobic experience so did not persevere with art education. Litten moved to London and began work in photographic studios, and later in Oxford where visits to Richard Hamilton’s studio encouraged a renewed interest in painting. This began a decade of private creativity.
Litten moved to Cornwall in 2001 and began exhibiting with DICK THE DOG, Penzance. In 2003 he was included in an exhibition of nudes in New York City (along with Epstein and Renoir) which saw a review in the New York Times.
He has exhibited in numerous international art fairs including Red Dot Miami, Red Dot New York, Art Toronto and Art Chicago with Jill George Gallery, London. He has exhibited in curated exhibitions in Berlin, Dublin, London, Milwaukee and New York.
Litten has work in the Milwaukee Art Museum, USA and Museum of Everything, London. His work was included in ‘No Soul For Sale’, an exhibition of independents in 2010 at the Tate Modern. He held a recent solo exhibition with L-13 LIGHT INDUSTRIAL WORKSHOP, London and exhibited with WW Gallery at the 54th Venice Biennale.
