Andrew Kline, New York Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement I'm not big on words... but here's a little something about myself...
My name is Andrew Kline. I'm a 26 year old artist living in New York State. I am currently working towards a Bachelors degree in Fine Art & Art History at the University of Albany. Art and creation have always been a major part of my life. I honestly have no idea what I would do without it. I spent most of my childhood attached to a sketchbook and loved every minute of it.
I have many interests in visual art… I enjoy most mediums and will pretty much try anything I can get my hands on. . I draw and paint more than anything else but I also enjoy sculpting, re-purposing objects and materials, printmaking, etching and photography. I am also a professionally licensed tattoo artist. I like working in a variety of mediums because I feel that they all compliment each other in one way or another. I am thoroughly fascinated with the art of animation, video games, cinematography and special effects. I also have an interest in the correlation between visual art and music.
Why do I create? Well I do it for myself... for my own sanity... But I also want to share my thoughts, ideas and inspirations with the world. When I make art, I am always searching for a truth. What is "true" to me will often raise questions for others. I get tremendous satisfaction out of that. I want you to think.. I want you to wonder.. What does my art mean? What is it purpose? Questions I’m frequently asked. But I prefer to let my art speak for itself... So what does it mean to you? What truths did you find?
I’d like to thank you for taking some time out of your day to check out my website. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am also available for commissions and freelance work.
