Andrew Ludick

Andrew Ludick has worked in many graphic arts fields from editorial illustrator, to mural painting as well as fine arts painting.  He graduated with a major in illustration from the Columbus College of Art before focusing on ceramics.  After moving to Ireland he slowly made a change from painting and drawing to working with clay. We’re very glad he did as we love the organic forms and the decorated patterns which compliment each pieces.  His artwork has also been superbly adapted to area rugs as shown above.

You can follow the artist on his website, Facebook and Instagram.

This Cork-based artist employs silkscreen printing to record his travels and paint a unique contemporary picture of the world today.  In an article on Irish Examiner he says this about his work:

“My artwork is mainly abstract with bright-coloured compositions that focus on structure and tension. I also admire architecture and often use the shapes of buildings in my pieces.”
