Andrew Bartley is a Canadian artist based in Victoria, BC. His work is inspired by the realists of both the renaissance and twentieth century.
After a long career as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator his artistic attention has been focused on fine art since 2012.
Andrew started to show his work shortly after his first few pieces were done. Participation in local juried group shows included the Sooke Fine Art Show, Massey Gallery at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, The Coast Collective, the Xchanges Gallery and now for the first time Sydney Fine Art Show. In 2014 Andrew was awarded an Award of Excellence at the Sooke Fine Arts Show for his drawing “New York Girl.”
A large part of Andrew's artistic journey is En Plein Air painting. “My wife (artist Faye Hoffman) and I cherish the experience. It combines our love for both the outdoors and art.”
And for the future? “Simply more - Painting and showing work as much as possible."
