Cape Town’s Andrew Cooper, a self-taught artist, merges semi-realism with mysticism, characterized by vivid colors, nuanced light, and expansive scale. He paints from memory and personal photos, aiming to capture scenes’ essence in his distinctive style. Fine detail and rich hues immerse viewers in each piece. His mystical creations draw from imagination, delving into nature, mythology, and spirituality. Though he briefly lived in Scotland and England, Cape Town remains his cherished home. Since 1987, he’s pursued art professionally, transitioning from watercolors to acrylics. Inspired by the Western Cape’s natural beauty, his subjects span mountains, beaches, rivers, and more. Andrew’s art mirrors his grounded and unpretentious demeanor, offering viewers a sincere encounter. When not painting, he’s often found fly-fishing or savoring a good Scotch.
