Andrei Autumn was born in Daugavpils, Latvia (EU), former Soviet Union in 1959, in town which has achieved its world recognition due to the fact that Mark Rothko was born there. In 1984 Andrei defected to the West and lived for over 24 years in USA.
At the end of the 90s Andrei started to experiment with visual arts: painting, photography, etc. This passion was prompted by a simple intention to decorate his residence with art. What is the best way, but use your own work? You hang on your walls exactly what you like and it’s cheap.
Andrei is a self-taught artist and his only guide is the inner intuition. His pieces often depict complex emotions conveyed by layers and mix of colors and shapes. Even though the works are abstract, sophisticated viewers could see some images: faces, heads, other non-abstract shapes. One just needs a certain type of imagination to see them. Andrei’s style and methods change from time to time, but in general terms could be described as Action, Color Field painting, Geometric Abstraction, and Emotional/Intuitional Art, etc.
Andrei is also a musician: singer-songwriter, from 2008 residing in Latvia.
