BA (Hons) Fine Art
Central Saint Martins
Andrea Tyrimos graduated in Fine Art from Central St Martins in 2009, and has exhibited extensively since then. She has been mentioned in publications such as ‘Time-Out’ and ‘an magazine’, and has won awards including the ‘Signature Art People’s Choice Painting Award’ and the ‘Art & Escape Award’.
Charles Baudelaire in 1863 called for painters to focus on ‘depicting the fast-changing landscapes of life’, and described such an artist as ‘The Painter of Modern Life’: it is clear that within her varied series of works, capturing such modernity is something that Andrea Tyrimos achieves. Her vibrant, neon paintings represent a nocturnal narrative flow. Some of the pieces are concerned with giving artificial lights physical substance, whilst others present a historical trajectory. The paintings are as much to do with the physical medium of paint itself as the intangibility of the light this medium attempts to reproduce.
