Andy Bates

New media artist & designer

Hello! I’m Andy, a Brisbane-based artist with a passion for creating works that encourage exploration and provide new experiences for the audience. My creative practice involves a fusion of past experiences and skills that I use to establish strong and thoughtful connections from the concepts behind a work to the final outcome. Please browse my portfolio to see a selection of past projects, and if you’re interested in working with me or commissioning a work, don’t hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
