Andrew Kinmont developed a deep appreciation of nature during a childhood spent walking and enjoying the wildness of the African landscape. Completing his schooling with awards in Art, Andrew studied Fine Art at the University of Wales, graduating with a first class Honours degree in 2007. While studying, he curated exhibitions and showed his work at local galleries and abroad. Andrew obtained further training from St Martins College London and West Dean College, Chichester.
Since then his work has met with critical acclaim and is collected both locally and abroad. Kinmont has been featured in the notable “Who’s Who in Art” (Movern Press), is an elected member of the prestigious Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, as well as the Manchester Academy of Fine Art. His work has appeared on the cover of various magazines and catalogues and is regularly selected for the Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. The spectacular and often wild landscapes of Cheshire and North Wales are a vital influence for Andrew’s work and so he established his home and studio near Chester.
