Life & Work with Andrew Bennett

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Bennett. 

Hi Andrew, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I was at a real low point in my life before I found my love of art again. I never would have guessed it would have brought me so far. It breathed new life into me. I started just making art alone by myself, and as I got more comfortable, I started to live paint a party for my friends, and as time moved on, I started to live paint for festival and events. I would have never made it for the help and support of friends, family, and even random people. I am grateful for everything. 

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I think my biggest struggle, in the beginning, was getting the piece I was painting to look the way I wanted it to. But I was lucky enough to have art peers that helped lead me into the right direction. 

Thanks – so, what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in acrylic paint, but I’ve been trying to branch out to making digital art and even toys. My art style is a dark psychedelic. I love to make these creepy characters surrounded by bright colors. It invites you into the mystery of it all making you wonder what the character is supposed to be or even think. I’d love to make a comic book one of these days, but we will see about that! Haha 

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I have been lucky to have the friends and family that believe in me that has pushed me forward to get to this point. But I’ve been unlucky with how I’ve sent up my presentation and with not taking chances when I should. But you live, and you learn.
