About the artist:
Andy Hoven is a young, queer artist from Melbourne, Australia, with a passion for portrait illustration, printmaking and painting. Studying a Diploma of Visual Arts at NMIT, an Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts at RMIT, and commencing a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2018, Andy’s education provides a strong foundation for his art practice.
Engaging with the mediums of screen-printing, etching and painting, Andy’s work is an exploration of the often complex relationship between homosexuality, depression, and anxiety. Drawing primarily upon his own personal narrative, interviews and observational drawings of fellow gay males also inform his work. Emphasis is placed on identifying a shared psychological and emotional language within the LGBT community. Through gestural mark-making, Andy conveys a sense of heightened anxiety and tension. While his oil paintings exploit high intensity colour, his prints often employ a monochrome palette. The aim of Andy’s work is to highlight the conflicting energies reflective of the gay male experience. Ranging in scale from intimate concertina books to monumental oil paintings, his collection of work invites closer inspection.
Andy has participated in several group exhibitions, and illustrated resource magazines.
