André Schirmer

Biography

 

An urban painter, he is primarily interested in the movement of light in city centers. Thus, he prefers living at night and seeing the black asphalt. His work is greatly inspired by capturing the movement of different colors in daily life. A canvas in motion, his paintings become real adventures in which traffic jams and city life become a creative outlet.
Intensive traffic !


Andrew Schirmer particularly interested in the color and lighting effects that happen in major cities and the people he has observed in his immediate environment. Designer, graphic designer, illustrator and painter. He managed Led Claw Design, a firm of designers. First landscape painter, he then became an urban painter.

« Meeting Schirmer was a great pleasure because I found him to be a very mature man, in love with his art, very poised, and especially interested in peopleʼs opinions about his work. Its purpose is really to show the sensitivity of the environments in which he operates. »
