Andrew Hood was born in 1964 and brought up in Edinburgh, then Cheshire and now lives in Bristol. Initially he worked as a graphic designer until he returned to college to study for a degree in Illustration at John Moores University. As a student he won the Gorstella Award for Fine Art and the Liverpool Life Painting Open. On graduating he was asked to participate in a group show at the Gorstella Gallery, Chester and since has mainly worked as a fine artist, though he still accepts commissions as an illustrator.

Andrew makes several trips abroad each year to gather reference for his painting. Recent journeys have taken him to Tuscany, the South of France, Morocco and Croatia. Whilst he enjoys working abroad he often looks for beauty within our own diverse and engaging landscape from the Scottish Highlands to the rugged Cornish coastline to central London.

Andrew’s work has regularly been accepted for the Royal West of England Academy Autumn Show and in 2015 was selected to show in the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition in Dublin. He is an annual exhibitor at the London Art Fair, Art Holland and has recently exhibited at the Oriel Gallery, Ireland, Beaux Arts, Bath and the Weifhaus Gallery near Eindhoven.

His clients include Ernst & Young, BBC Casualty, WH Smith, The Art Group, Card Connections, Wetherspoons, Riverside Cards, Woman’s Weekly and Acrobat Design.

Commissions and Projects

Ernst and Young

Bristol based artist Andrew Hood was commissioned by Ernst & Young to create a large piece of work for their new Bristol office. Richard Jones from Ernst & Young was keen for the work to reflect the different aspects of Bristol, leading Andrew to create a series of sketches showcasing the range of architecture of the city to be hung alongside the main 1.5×1.2m oil painting. Together, the different pieces form a portrait of the vibrant city of Bristol, with the main painting capturing the cosmopolitan and European feel of the city centre.
