Andrew Litten attended art college in his teens and began higher art education but found it claustrophobic and restricting experience.

'Litten was working in minute and small scale in the late 1980’s and early 90’s with the humblest of materials such as note paper, envelopes and biros, to surreptitiously placing works in galleries to combat art elitism (before the Stuckists did this)'' Jane Boyer

He traveled the UK to find inspiration within commonplace life, aiming to convey an emotive poignancy in figurative representations of ‘the ordinary’ and 'the everyday'.

Later began exhibiting in 2003 with DICK THE DOG, Penzance. Was included in an exhibition ‘Nudes’ (along with Epstein and Renoir) in New York City which was reviewed in the NEW YORK TIMES and lead to work being placed in the collection of the MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM USA. Exhibited regularly with GOLDFISH, Penzance and at numerous international art fairs including Red Dot Miami, Red Dot New York, Art Toronto and Art Chicago with JILL GEORGE GALLERY. First major exhibit in London was at LIME WHARF in Vyner Street, with the work ‘Dog Breeder’ which was created as an anti-art statement and exhibited during the week of Frieze Art Fair 2007.

Was included in ‘No Soul For Sale’ an exhibition of independents in 2010 at TATE MODERN (turbine hall). Invited as solo guest at L-13 LIGHT INDUSTRIAL WORKSHOP, London in 2012. Exhibited with WW GALLERY at the 54th VENICE BIENNALE and with ‘This Me Of Mine – Identity in the Digital Age’ touring exhibition and symposium. Has exhibited in numerous international curated exhibitions including Berlin, Dublin, London, Sienna, Edinburgh, Milwaukee, New York City and China.
