Andrew Sullivan

Andrew studied graphic design at Hastings, Bournemouth and Croydon Colleges of Art and Design. During a career that has spanned over 20 years he has worked for such clients as Shell, Ferrari, Nissan, British Airways, BBC, ITV, Dorchester Hotel and London Fashion Week. He is currently the Creative Director at Blacknight Design, a design agency based in the south-east of England, which he formed in 2009. He has exhibited his paintings and photographs in various galleries and venues in and around the south-east of England and London. The photographs featured in this exhibition are from a series called ‘Longshore Drift’. The series observes the ever-evolving visual language of the beach at Dungeness (Kent) through the revealing typography, graphic marks and textures that adorn the sides of containers, huts, fishing boats and various other discarded objects that over time have populated the beach. The images talk of a language of time through decay; a coded history from within the weathered layers. The series also documents the survival of a fishing industry that has worked this stretch of beach for generations.
