Andrew Johnstone is a British artist now living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
He is muralist and specialist in the decorative arts of graining, marbling, and glazing.
His talent has been shaped by a classical European education in the arts, the privilege of being the protege of the finest master of the decorative arts in the world (William Holgate) and the subsequent bending of ALL the rules as a Burningman artist. The art style he is developing evolves with every project, and pushing the envelope of perspective and texture forces him to write the book as he goes.
“Being a muralist,” he says “every wall is a canvas and every building a gallery”
“The idea is that art can be something that one can live in, rather than just look at. It becomes a backdrop , part of our environment. This is not a new idea … but it can be.”
