Andrew Hood


Andrew Hood has always documented his travels abroad through drawing, filling sketchbooks with snippets of the scenery and day-to-day life he encounters along the way. Whether it’s people strolling through the sun-drenched piazzas in Sicily or the buzz of crowds at the souks in Marrakech, Andrew is adept at capturing the energy and feel of a location. Closer to home, views of the Thames and the iconic London skyline emerge from abstract marks and washes of ink. Although Andrew often seeks out an aerial viewpoint from which to sketch, many of his drawings also capture towns and villages such as Punta Secca and Taormina from ground level. Figures emerge from the sketches head on and we are drawn into the hustle and bustle evoked by Andrew’s energetic and expressive mark making. By positioning himself in amongst the people and everyday activity. Andrew’s observational drawings offer glimpses into the possible narratives of tourists and locals alike. Throughout the Coronavirus lockdown Andrew has been using old photos and sketches as reference for new interpretations of his travels.
