About his artwork: A Choir of Brown Angels.

These brown angels spend their time making their universe a better place. At unpredictable times during the day and night from a scaffold, they are busy painting faded rainbows, polishing stars, washing the moon, pumping flat clouds with air, and watering flowers and trees among other things. In this piece, they are simply spreading love.

Andy is represented by Artis Gallery in Auckland.
