Andrew Beswick is a Manchester-based artist who's work includes poetry, drawing, performance and sculpture. His approach to art is intuitive and self-taught and his inspiration to begin making art originated from a love of expressionist painting, primitive/ outsider art and the work of groups such as COBRA and the Situationist International. His interest lies in the experimentation with form and the creative process. Each work is seen as incomplete or unfinished, a sketch or an idea that is an end unto itself. With an artistic practice that is centered around spontaneity and the natural environment he combines elements of cartography, primitivism and poetry with an interest in social history, ethnology and pieces of ephemera and throwaway culture.
