Andrew is a skateboarder and oil painter based in New York City

“I am a painter, but I have many other interests including skateboarding.

Well, I think skateboarding itself is an art, a sort of physical performance art like dancing or ice skating or something. I’m sure the appeal of skateboarding comes from a person’s desire to create and work at something to perfect it. So naturally skateboarding and people with artistic drives go hand in hand. I’m not sure I know of any skateboarders who don’t also make some sort of art or have other creative outlets.

Man, I have so many inspirations from skateboarding. Skateboarding shaped my interests from a young age especially musically. All I really had to hear music from was skateboard videos or the radio. I didn’t have MTV or anything as a kid on my TV at home but I had a good collection of skate videos. Made my taste in music very well rounded. I always looked up to Ed Templeton for being a very serious artist/skateboarder.

But as far as influencing my painting style I’d say that comes more from my interest in art history and books I’ve read and what not.

I think that’s great. Like I said before. It goes hand in hand and its cool to focus on both simultaneously I guess. Explore the relationships between different art forms like skateboarding and visual art and music. Very cool.

Not that I can really talk about. But I’m painting a lot and plan on continuing to do so!”
