Artist Print Series 027 - Andy Arkley
The 27th in our Artist Print Series. 2023 marks the fifth year of APS and to celebrate, we've brought back our sold out artists from years past. This print is by Andy Arkley, who was a part of the 2021 APS cohort.
This print is based off a painting/sculpture I made called “Spring Break”. Living in downtown Tulsa has made me especially attuned to the plant and animal life that lives between the streets and buildings. I love making drawings of the things I see and not worrying whether I’m making a direct representation of something. Obviously I love flowers and color - and this piece is for both of those loves.
Andy Arkley is a visual artist, designer, musician and animator who often combines these disciplines in his work. He strives to make simple and vibrant art that fosters positivity and elation. He currently lives in Tulsa OK for the Tulsa Artist Fellowship with his wife Julie Alpert. He was born in Bellingham, WA and has spent much of his life in Seattle.
Andy’s work has been presented at the Bellevue Arts Museum, Mad Art Studio, WNDR Museum Seattle and Chicago, Facebook Seattle, Salish Coast Elementary School, Sweet Tooth Hotel Dallas, Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx and the Pictoplasma animation festival in Berlin.
He is a member of the sound collage band The Bran Flakes and has produced 6 full-length albums since 1999. He has a BA from The Evergreen State College where he studied animation and electronic music.
