Andy Bridge has worked as an illustrator for 20 years primarily in book illustration, working around the world for all the major publishing houses. He illustrated the Booker Prize-winning novel A Life of Pi by Yann Martel, as well as illustrating books by Michael Palin, Louis de Bernières, Hilary Mantel and Richard Feynman. He exhibits and sells his paintings and three dimensional pieces annually at the Spring Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, London but has also exhibited in New York, Hong Kong and Stockholm. His work has been bought by Peter Gabriel, Paul Smith and Ted Baker, amongst others. Commissions have ranged from creating film sets to producing shop window displays around the world for Anya Hindmarch to painting pet portraits.
He paints onto wood or metal with household emulsion and prints using stencils, often scratching into the surface of the paint, scraping away layers, removing the newness of the image and revealing traces of paint beneath.
In 2004 he moved from his studio in Notting hill to the Languedoc countryside in France.
