Andrew Myers (Braunshweig, Germany 1979 - )


About

Andrew Myers was born in Braunshweig, Germany, and raised in Ciudad Real, Spain. He now resides in Laguna Beach, California, where he has lived since attending the Laguna College of Art and Design (formerly the Art Institute of Southern California). The first time he set foot in the classroom, he was amazed to see students depicting live nude models in clay; a seemingly archaic art form he had only seen in books.

Though Andrew is best known for his time-intensive screw pieces, his work spans multiple genres and mediums, including sculpting, painting, and drawing. He most enjoys fast, expressive pieces like charcoal sketches, yet at the same time, feels that true art requires struggle, energy, time, and sacrifice; elements his screw pieces provide in spades. Given their complexity, unique subject matter, and unusual materials, Andrew produces only five to ten pieces a year, each of which is an experiment in art, mathematics, and creative problem solving. His workflow fluctuates between careful, conscious planning with his assistants, and countless hours spent in a dreamlike flow state where hours pass by as if in a moment.

Andrew continues to push the boundaries of his craft, constantly searching for new subjects and unconventional mediums in which to capture them. He especially enjoys using objects and materials that are not usually considered art. Andrew’s guiding principle is to create better art today than he did yesterday. He knows that this means he will never be content in life, but he feels blessed to have found fulfillment and purpose in his role as artist, father, and friend.
