Andy Mercer

Andy Mercer was part of the first group of artists to embrace the internet and incorporate digital processes into their creative practice. Blurring the boundaries between graphic and traditional art, he sees no difference between the two. "We don't describe music created digitally as “digital” music; it's all just music - the same applies to art."

Influenced by northern artists like L.S. Lowry and Major, he also draws inspiration from the more uncompromising northern landscapes. However his art is of the present, full of fabulous contrasts and contradictions. He enjoys the textures and imagery which surrounds us on the streets: rusting metals, graffiti, rough concrete, street signs, torn weather swept posters and billboards, peeling and fading, revealing layers that create entirely new images; unplanned and unpredicted the raw material of our recycled, re-used re-invented world.

Mercer's layers of line, shape, colour, graffiti, and personal mark-making are crafted into an atmospheric patchwork of urban life. This collection of prints wonderfully capture these complex realities, rich in patterns and rhythms of suburbia.
