Andy Collis

Andy Collis is an expressive painter and art academic working with a bright and contemporary colour palette. A traditional portrait painter at heart with a natural energy for experimentation with new medias, methods and styles. He creates daily from his professional studio and knows no boundaries with his artmaking. He is a gentle-natured and receptive artist who paints representations of mood and aesthetic. His work is modern, bold, and colourful, which will complement most contemporary homes and enhance professional offices.

His contemporary “Colour Layer” series is fresh and interesting. This is by far Andy’s most popular series to date and has gained worldwide attention. His technique involves the layering of splashed contrasting pigments and mediums on canvas. The result is an expressive abstract work of art that Andy skillfully works to create a representative composition. The paintings immediately remind viewers of Pollock’s famous drip paintings and the intense work of Milton Resnick. 

Collis has exhibited extensively in the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Show, as well as throughout NSW. As a dedicated portrait painter, Andy Collis welcomes portrait commissions of all sizes. Contact KAB Gallery to arrange a studio visit to discuss.
