about Andrew Tischler
Hi I’m Andrew and I love to paint – in fact, I’m obsessed with it! I have been making art ever since I can remember and I spend every day trying to better myself as an Artist.
I have been a professional Artist for the last 17 years. It’s all I do. It’s been an amazing ride and has taken me around the world. I was born in the United States and moved to Australia when I was 10 years old. I stayed in Australia for 20+ years where I studied my craft. My career began in Perth, Western Australia. In the years that followed my first solo exhibition in 2002, I have enjoyed exhibiting my work and painting for clients internationally.
My paintings reflect something personal. I am drawn to vast landscapes, people, objects and animals. I paint a wide variety of subjects in a realist style. In every painting I am striving to understand the laws of nature and how light works. My goal for every painting is to achieve a convincing sense of reality and break the constraints of the two dimensional surface.
I have a passion for teaching; I love to pass on what I have gathered from my years of research and experimentation in the studio.
My obsession with realist painting has led me to study many of the great masters from the past and seek to understand how they made such magnificent pictures. I am eager to share what I have garnered from years of toil.
I started a YouTube channel in 2016; I was eager to share my painting knowledge with people around the world. This channel has grown to over 429,000 subscribers and I am dedicated to my craft more than ever!
I now live and work in the Marlborough Sounds, in the South Island of New Zealand. I work with my wife Rachel where we produce videos for my YouTube channel & Patreon members, along with in-depth tutorials and run the studio creating works of art for my collectors.
