Mark Andreas

Mark Andreas, currently based in Stamford, Connecticut, has had a varied career as an artist, designer, carpenter, furniture maker, black smith, and ship builder. However, his passion always has been sculpture. Mark creates kinetic, abstract, and figurative sculpture. At its core, Mark’s art explores time, material, transformation, and social and environmental forces. Mark studied at the Art Institute of Boston and the School of Visual Arts in New York. The majority of Mark’s work is environmentally reactive sculpture. These sculptures move and act with forces of nature. They combine traditional hand-crafted woodworking and metal smithing methods with modern construction techniques.

He has exhibited nationally and internationally, including in Berlin, Helsinki, Istanbul, Basal, Turku, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, and New York. Mark’s work has been on show at solo shows in Brooklyn, Berlin, Tennessee, and Basel. He also has participated in various group shows including at Galeria...Read More
