andre stitt was born in belfast,nNorthern ireland in 1958. he studied at ulster polytechnic + belfast college of art + design, ulster university 1976-1980. he is currently professor of fine art at cardiff school of art + design, cardiff metropolitan university, and a fellow of the royal society of art

working almost exclusively as a action-based + interdisciplinary artist from 1976-2002, stitt gained an international reputation for cutting edge, provocative + politically challenging work. a predominate theme in his artistic output is that of communities + their dissolution often relating to trauma, conflict + art as a redemptive proposition. his ‘live’ performance + installation works have been presented at major museums, galleries and sites specific throughout the world.

although stitt’s reputation was founded on his international career as a live artist, he originally trained as a painter in his home town of belfast. in 2008 he was awarded a major creative wales award to develop his painting practice + has since radically changed his output to painting. his recent works are inspired by architectural blue plans + the structural + emotive qualities of the post war brutalist housing estate where he grew up
