Andy Kehoe was born in 1978 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he currently lives and works. In 2003, he graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York, with a BFA in Illustration. Andy’s work has since been exhibited and collected internationally.

His work serves as an outlet to feelings of unrest and anxiety in this unstable world of ours. Also important is the expression of sincere human emotion without the weight of sarcasm and irony which has become overabundant in art these days. Kehoe consummately fills his tales with a spellbinding sense of drama and emotion, largely aided by a undeniable understanding of effulgent light sources which bathe the creatures of his world in a glorious radiance.

Always challenging himself and experimenting with new techniques, Kehoe’s most recent work incorporates intricately modelled sculptural elements submerged within layers of poured resin and paint.
