Born in Sydney in 1970, Brook Andrew now lives and works in Melbourne. He has exhibited regularly with Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi, Melbourne; Stills Gallery, Sydney; Greenaway Art Gallery, Adelaide and is now solely represented by Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne

Brook Andrew's work incorporates many different artistic styles. Largely photographic in origin, his work encompasses installation, architecture, public art and landscape design. His works are beautifully striking, contemplative and inspiring creations that markedly challenge our conceptions of ourselves, our environment and our ideas of what an art work should say and what an artist's role is. Beneath Andrew's seemingly obvious amalgamation of text and image with its bright, flashy show-man style of contemporary brilliance lies a more heavy, intellectually imbued message. Andrew seems to seduce his viewer with his alluring aesthetics and when seduced, the viewer is thrown amongst a political revelation of race, history, environment and nature and/or challenged with a complex conceptual engagement with art and these subjects.
