Andrew Denman

“In the increasingly crowded field of wildlife artists, Andrew Denman stands out for his distinctive look in addition to his masterful painting skill,” writes veteran art writer and magazine editor Jennifer King in a 2008 editorial for Create Better Denman is an artist known for capturing diverse subjects, from wildlife, to landscape, to still life, in an equally diverse range of styles. His recent work focuses on intimate wildlife portraits and scenes approached with a unique combination of hyperrealism, stylization, and abstraction. Denman holds a BA in Fine Arts from Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, CA. He is well known in the San Francisco Bay Area as both an artist and teacher and he has gained national attention through major gallery showings, numerous museum exhibitions artist workshops as well as feature coverage in such publications as Southwest Art, American Artist, Western Art Collector, Wildlife Art, and The Artist’s Magazine, among others. Born in 1978, Andrew showed a great degree of interest in art from an early age. Denman organized his first one man show and soon after began participating in exhibitions with Pacific Wildlife Galleries in Lafayette, CA, where he held four successful solo exhibitions. Denman is currently represented by Trailside Galleries in Jackson, WY. His work has toured nationally with Birds in Art and the Society of Animal Artists, which has thrice honored Andrew’s work with Awards of Excellence. The artist is a regular participant in the highly competitive Western Visions Miniatures and More Exhibition and Sale at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, an institution that named him the Lanford Monroe Memorial Artist in Residence for Winter of 2009. Denman’s work can be found in the National Museum of Wildlife Art and The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin, and numerous private collections across the country. The artist is a member of the Society of Animal Artists, NY, The International Guild of Realism, Arizona, and Artists for Conservation, Canada. Whether painting an animal in its natural habitat or juxtaposing it against an abstract background, Denman goes to great lengths to faithfully portray his subjects. The sense of fearless experimentation and originality he brings to his paintings testifies to the artist’s true focus. As Mary Nelson Wildlife Art magazine, “In the end, it’s not the mood, the meaning or the method that Denman craves. It is the medium―art.”
