Andrew Ludick graduated with a major in illustration from the Columbus College of Art in 2000. He has worked in many graphic arts fields from editorial illustrator, to mural painting as well as fine arts painting.
In 2003 Andrew moved to Ireland, where he initially focused on painting and drawing and has since concentrated his craftsmanship on ceramics.
Andrew hand builds forms using white earthenware clay and decorates them with coloured slips. Each one is a unique piece of art in its shape and decoration. Several handbuilding techniques are used to make the pieces. Once built, the form is treated as a blank canvas on which he applies patterns and decoration.
They are then coated and finished with a glossy clear glaze. Andrew's main influences are the arts and designs from indigenous cultures of Africa and the Americas as well as work by artists such as Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Thelonious Monk and Eric Dolphy. Andrew's work is regularly featured in exhibitions around Ireland and will be exhibited with I am of Ireland during March at the Chelsea Arts Club.
