Artist, South Africa (b.1975)
Andrew Kayser displays his technical mastery in his finely detailed narrative paintings. Embracing ambiguity and contradiction, his works are both a critique and reconciliation of his coming of age, depicting saccharine suburban scenes disconnected from the larger social reality.
He graduated from Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (Royal Academy of Art), Den Haag, Netherlands in 2001. Currently living and working in inner-city Johannesburg, he is represented in collections both locally and abroad.
