Born in Mansfield, UK, Andy Webster has a PhD in Fine Art awarded by the University of Arts, London, MA Fine Art Printmaking from Brighton Polytechnic, and BA (Hons) Fine Art from Manchester Polytechnic.
Andy works individually and collaboratively across sculpture, performance, moving image, and sound, often in response to characteristics associated with a particular site, context, or discourse. Recent collaborative work has explored large-scale sculptural reconstructions of objects, as a mean of re-examining specific historical, cultural and fictional events. He is currently making sound and light works that utilise live audio feeds, recordings of his own voice, and samples from a range of sources ranging from 70's comedy routines, death metal growls and VLF radio phenomena.
