Andrew Bedingfield was born in England in 1968, and emigrated to Canada at the age of thirteen.
Andrew was always drawn to the atmosphere and simplicity of communicative imagery. During his adolescence this predilection intensified, encompassing artwork presented in film and advertizing.
Initially indulged as a means of meditative withdrawall, the directness of expression that painting affords soon became apparent, and Andrew saw potential for "perfect visual speech"; free from laws and prerequisites. Although emotionally influenced by painters such as Bacon, Rothko, and Dali, Andrew maintains that conscious imitation is counter-productive, and studies only to establish his own voice.
