Andy Christie was born in 1977 and raised in Birmingham, England. He studied Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University in Yorkshire where he graduated in 2000.
He has exhibited in various locations in the UK, including a national touring exhibition of London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds and Glasgow, as well as being a semi-finalist in the Sothebyfs/Artlink International Artist Exhibition and showing at numerous galleries and fairs in London.
In 2007, Andy Christie moved to Japan where he currently resides and works giving him the opportunity to artistically explore various aspects of Japanese culture.
His first solo exhibition in Japan in 2009 entitled eLiving with Light and Darkf was displayed at the renowned Hamamura Gallery in Shizuoka, Japan.
Various factors contribute to the diverse dimensions displayed throughout his work. Light is an integral part of his artwork as it illuminates and defines the assorted elements present. Rather than completely covering his preferred painting support of aluminium with paint, Andy prefers to scratch and expose the aluminium providing a unique surface for the interaction of light thus making the painting support a visually integral aspect of the art itself.
