About Andy Baird

Andrew Baird is a gestural, action painter – that is, one who flings or drips paint onto canvas to form compositions, rather than using paintbrushes in the traditional manner. By combining the unlikely duo of portraiture – which thrives on likenesses and naturalness – with abstract expressionism – which attempts to avoid likenesses and subjects from nature, Andy Baird has created a new and original hybrid art form: the action-painted portrait. Such originality and invention creates new areas of value in art.
