Andrew McKeown has completed many large scale sculpture commissions throughout the U.K and internationally for local councils, housing developers and environmental agencies such as Groundwork U.K, Wilmott Dixon, Wing Tai Holdings and Yuill, Miller and Haslam Homes.
Recurring themes within Andrew’s work are those of growth, change and renewal and these natural or organic themes are often combined with site specific historical or industrial references which can be both literal and metaphorical.
Andrew’s expertise is in sculpture, design and environmental regeneration. Casting and mould making processes inform and influence Andrew’s work in both a practical and conceptual way and he often create installations of multiple sculptures which are cast or fabricated in durable materials such as iron, steel, bronze and stone.
Working as part of a team with architects, landscape architects, project managers and other professionals Andrew sees collaboration as central to his work and his artwork makes a significant contribution to the regeneration of local communities and urban environments.
Local communities have been involved in all of Andrew’s public commissions and he has extensive experience and knowledge in this area. Andrew lives and works in the North East of England and is available for public and private commissions throughout the U.K. and internationally.
