Bio

Andrew Gilbert è un artista scozzese, nato nel 1980 a Edinburgo che frequentò la Fine Art - University of Edinburgh e l'Edinburgh College of Art. Egli interpreta in modo satirico la storia del colonialismo europeo nei suoi dipinti, opere su carta e sculture mixed-media. Le  opere di Gilbert evocano la sua immaginazione fantasiosa in uno stile finto-naif. I suoi ritratti sgargianti e modelli beffardi di figure militari immaginarie prendono spunto da manoscritti persiani fino alla scultura medievale europea.

Andrew Gilbert is a scottish artis, born in 1980 in Edinburgh who attended the Fine Art - University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art. He satirically interprets the history of European colonialism in his paintings, works on paper, and mixed-media sculptures. Gilbert’s works evoke his fanciful imagination in a faux-naive style. His gaudy portraits and mocking models of imaginary military figures take their reference points from Persian manuscripts to medieval European sculpture.
