ELECTED IN 2014
Smith was selected for the International Painting Symposium at
the Mark Rothko Center for September 2021. He
is a Wales based painter working consistently with colour by
means of exhibition projects (Colour Equilibrium 2018) and exploring
cultural contexts by establishing exchange links with
international partners (most recently, Latvia, Australia and India
2018 to 2019).
Andrew has worked on public art projects and
commissions exploring colour in terms of location and scale (Barry
2009, Cardiff 2010, Russia 2011, Llandudno 2019 and Llandrindod
2021). His curated projects include Re/take Re/invent (2016)
funded by Arts Council of Wales.
In 2018, Andrew was Artist in Residence at Sauerbier
House, South Australia for three months, supported by Wales Arts
International. His most recent residency was in North East India
followed by a tour of Madhya Pradesh with an exhibition at Alliance
Français de Bhopal and this experience informs current practice. As
an educator, he has taught throughout his career and until 2017 was
Director of Fine Art at Bangor University.
