Andrea Tyrimos graduated in Fine Art from Central St Martins in 2009, and has exhibited extensively since then. She has been mentioned in publications such as ‘Time-Out’ and ‘an magazine’, and has won awards including the ‘Signature Art People’s Choice Painting Award’ and the ‘Art & Escape Award’.
Charles Baudelaire in 1863 called for painters to focus on ‘depicting the fast-changing landscapes of life’, and described such an artist as ‘The Painter of Modern Life’: it is clear that within her varied series of works, capturing such modernity is something that Andrea Tyrimos achieves. Her vibrant, neon paintings represent a nocturnal narrative flow. Some of the pieces are concerned with giving artificial lights physical substance, whilst others present a historical trajectory. The paintings are as much to do with the physical medium of paint itself as the intangibility of the light this medium attempts to reproduce.
