King Street Gallery on William - Andrew Christofides







From the very first time I saw Andrew’s work at King Street Gallery in the mid to late 90’s I fell in love with it, it still holds a fascination with me as I do enjoy some serious geometric abstraction... I believe that if Kazimir Malevich was alive today he’d be quite chuffed to have been a huge influence on Andrew’s Art practice...

Still kicking myself for being too tired to go to the opening, but enjoyed viewing the work more so with an empty space, more chance to make acquaintance with each piece... As a quiet gallery lets you enjoy the silent speech of each work... And to study each brush stroke and his repeated favourite palette...

I’ve never really been a fan of acrylic paint but somehow Andrew can paint with acrylic paint and make it not look like acrylic paint... And that’s what I like...
