Andrew Flint

BORN:
Andrew Flint Shipman

EARLY LIFE:
A self-taught artist who was born and brought up in and around the Theatre. He was an apprentice at the Theatre Royal, Windsor, working his way up to stage management. Following his dream to paint he left the theatre in 1989. Andrew was only 8 years old when he began exploring modelling. In his early 20’s he began a BA in Ceramics at Birmingham University but in his first year he felt that he was not being pushed enough so transferred to a degree in Industrial Design. This change broadened his knowledge of materials and introduced him to computers. Andrew was repeatedly invited to return to Birmingham University as a visiting lecturer, teaching students in a variety of different courses, from Fine Art to interior Design. In his late 30’s he completed a Masters in Ceramics and Glass.

CAREER:
His first show that year at W H Patterson resulted in a painting being bought by Sir Michael Caine and he has not looked back since, It’s only in the last few years that he has started designing and making work that is purely sculptural.

MEDIUMS USED IN WORK:
Each piece is built by hand from clay using the coiling method and then individually fired to stoneware temperatures. The work has to dry thoroughly before being fired and a single form may take months to complete.

SUBJECTS OF WORK:
Human form and figurative.

EXHIBITIONS:
He has had 26 solo shows as well as being in countless mixed shows. Exhibiting in England, the USA, France, Belgium, Malta, Spain, Greece, Crete and Scotland. He has won prizes, sold works, and gained accolades at various sculpture events, including first prize for his installation at the Rococo Gardens, and providing sculptures for the Award winning Brand Alley garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. He has also designed products that have been used in luxury boats, hotels, and private residences throughout the world
