Andrew Seto (b. Edinburgh, 1966) is a British visual artist whose studio practice is based in East London.
After graduating in Law from the University of Birmingham, he studied at Central Saint Martins and the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL where he won the Coldstream Prize and a scholarship to the New York Studio School.
Andrew's painting practice plays with, meditates on, and explores the conventions and contradictions of pictorial space through ambivalent gesture, personal allegory and the materiality of paint.
Sometimes referencing the natural world, organisational systems or the decorative, his work borrows freely from the history and languages of painting and contains themes of bathos, the sublime and the imperfect.
His work is held in public and private collections, and has been selected for juried exhibitions and awards including the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the John Moores Painting Prize, and the Whitechapel Open.
Andrew is also a trustee of artist residency programme The Florence Trust and an advisor to TATE Media.
