.Andrew Munoz (b. London, 1967) trained as a painter at the Plymouth College of Art and Design and later at Falmouth College of Art.
Munoz grew up in the ‘greybelt’, surrounded by the meticulously planned but ugly concrete buildings, housing estates of uniform design punctuated by convenient but soulless patches of greenery. He describes this as an ‘over-simplified environment ... much like the over-simplified places in picture books’. This now informs the backdrop to many of his works.
He is deeply influenced by the work of Goya, Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch. The artist lives and works in Bristol and San Sebastian, Spain.
