Andrew Covell is a contemporary painter and motion graphics artist. His brightly colored geometric abstractions depict the landscapes and skies of his California surroundings through a fractured lens. He studied Cinema and Photography, as well as drawing, at Ithaca College in upstate NY.
After moving to Los Angeles, he took up painting. In 2008, Andrew began to develop his ever evolving geometric style. His work has been shown all across Los Angeles from Long Beach Museum of Art to the L.A. Artcore Brewery Annex downtown.
His style is inspired by the visual elements of digital society such as pixelation, glitches, and vector art. He plays on the similarities between digital pixels and the sub-atomic particles that make up the universe. By simplifying images down to geometric level, Andrew hints at the complex math that is life; in all that we see.
His Corrupted Tactile series shows a different side of his work. Collaged from thick chunks of dried paint contrasted with three dimensional stripes of color, these pieces show a dichotomy of order and chaos and of the organic and the digital world.
