Andrew Mackenzie was born in Banff, north east Scotland and graduated with an MFA from Edinburgh College of Art in 1993. Andrew Mackenzie is a painter and printmaker whose work mines a territory between pure abstraction and representation. Andrew's work responds to the landscape and overtly acknowledges the constructs through which it is seen. His paintings and prints contain elements of a conventional landscape, through his use of colour, a semi abstraction and layered working process, he provides contemporary interventions that break with tradition and portray a stunning and sublime work.
Andrew Mackenzie's work has been included in important solo and group exhibitions and shown extensively throughout the UK and abroad. He has shown in many international art fairs including New York, Toronto, London, Chicago and Paris. Andrew has works in many collections including The University of Edinburgh, Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow, The Fleming Collection, The Royal Academy, Edinburgh City Art Centre, Bank of Scotland and the Bank of America.
Awards include several Scottish Arts Council awards, a Hope Scott Trust Award and an Arts Trust Scotland Award. Andrew recently completed (in 2014) a major commission for a building on Sloane Square, and in 2011 made a large piece for Crown House, an office building on Kingsway in London.
Andrew Mackenzie was recently an invited artist at Converge 2016, at The Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh, for which Andrew has made 3 large-scale drawings on paper. He is also currently Artist-in-residence at Edinburgh Academy, and is project artist for the Hawick Flood Prevention Scheme, a major public art project.
