Andrew McAttee studied fine art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design after many years as a graffiti artist. During his studies he became increasingly interested in abstract expressionism and pop art. These have gradually blended with his older influences of other street artists to create a hybrid style.
With his spinning, euphoric, and fantasy landscapes, McAttee conveys an overwhelming sense of optimism or excitement that mirrors his experience as a graffiti artist, working under the constant threat of thieves and police. Apart from producing his own work, he has run workshops for teenagers with behavioural problems.
McAttee has been commissioned by Benson & Hedges, Nike, and fashion designer Antonio Berardi amongst others. His work has been exhibited in New York and across Europe, including a solo show in London.
