Andrew Thomas Biography

andrew_thomas_biographyAndrew Thomas has been sculpting professionally since 1993. He gained international recognition quite rapidly for his three dimensional art which have won him over 20 awards, including three international gold medals.

Andrew’s work has reached high acclaim in the UK’s most prestigious exhibitions and academies, including the Royal British Society of Artists, Mall Galleries London, the Royal West of England Academy, BADA London, LAPADA London, Olympia London and Henley Festival and he has been shown in well over 100 exhibitions.

Andrew has progressively developed his understanding of three dimensional sculpture by experimenting with form, his individual style naturally evolving to produce an extensive and diverse range of harmonious designs through a number of limited edition series, all of them embodying the essence of their subject.

He originally works in wood and then casts in bronze using the lost wax method, usually in limited editions of 7, 9 and 12. The style of his forms have an elegant fusion of plane and contour and are full of dynamic energy, graceful movement and emotional resonance that sensitively breathes life into the spaces that they occupy.

Andrew Thomas - Double Bass 1Andrew finally finishes the bronze surface to his own high standard and then performs the patination procedure to add the colour and effect to resonate throughout each individual sculpture, adding an important creative fingerprint to each individual form.

Andrew has been writing for several different publishers since 1994 including the Guild of Master Craftsmen and as a regular author in every issue ‘Wood Carving’; a bi-monthly magazine sold in 57 countries. In 2011 Andrew wrote his first book ‘Learn To Carve In The Round’ (commissioned by the GMC) which is also available in 57 countries worldwide.

Andrew joined The Harbour Gallery in the summer of 2015 and the extraordinary beauty of his works give a new texture to the galleries growing stable of renowned artists.
