Andrew Wright Interview

Featured Artist: Andrew Wright

“I’m privileged to be able to produce work that’s dear to me rather than work I want to sell. I’m trying to express myself”

Jimi – Up close

Wright’s robust figurative art, often infused with the influence of Reggae, Hip-hop and Drum & Bass takes a bold stance on race, iconography and discrimination.

…Often infused with the influence of Reggae, Hip-hop and Drum & Bass…

Approaching sensitive subjects in a thought-provoking way, by looking through the lens of the culture, his work often includes conventional iconography twisting archetypal views of ethnicity.


Pray series

Wright tackles his subjects through a diverse variety of mediums and techniques. Ranging from scratchy monochromatic drawings to bold, figurative, vibrant and colourful canvasses,  he changes his creative “tool-kit” regularly to adapt to his subject matter.


The Last Supper


In 2007, Wright’s work featured in the Surface Gallery, Nottingham. Showcasing a reference to his childhood. The exhibition, Golly confronted prejudices still present in his adult life.
