About the Artist

Andrew Wilkinson has been a working and exhibiting fine artist for over ten years, exploring both photography and sculpture. His work has been shown regionally and internationally – participating in exhibitions in Russia and Beijing.  Publications include five New York Times reviews through exhibitions at the Jersey City Museum, NJ, and the Hudson Valley Museum of Contemporary Art.
Wilkinson combines both disciplines to interpret captivating reconstructions of everyday objects into works of art that challenge even the most devoted perception. Iconic cultural imagery is restructured to encourage a new relationship to the nostalgia and settled perceptions of commercialism, religion, and typography. Of his work, Wilkinson says, “The artist is the custodian of identifying what is current and exploiting the content into another accessible medium. I aim to constantly exploit the aspect of accessibility.”

Andrew runs Wilkinson Media, a marketing and photography firm in Titusville, NJ. He received his degree in Media Communications and Technology from East Stroudsburg University and worked in film and corporate design in both London and New York. Wilkinson has worked in marketing communications and design for over 15 years, starting in London for a public relations and design firm specializing in film clients such as Disney, Virgin Interactive, and United Artists. In New York, Wilkinson worked for Ernst & Young LLP in creative services before moving on to Merrill Lynch in Princeton, NJ working with clients that included Coke, McDonald’s, FedEx, Cendant, and Haworth.

Wilkinson’s work has been featured in the Jersey City Museum, Newark Library Prints Collection, Hudson Valley Center of Contemporary Art, Arizona Museum of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, Arts Council of Princeton, D&R Greenway, Abington Arts Center, Artworks Trenton, Gallery 219 Trenton, West Windsor Arts Council, Ellarslie Museum, Trenton, as well as some international venues.

In addition to the New York Times, his work has received national recognition, having been reviewed by the Visual Arts Journal, Trenton Times, Phoenix New Times, Bucks County Herald, Princeton Packet, US-1 News, Town Topics, Princeton Magazine, The Intelligencier, and more.
