Contemporary artist Andy Saczynski is perhaps best known for his mixed media assemblage art. His style includes characteristics of cubism, folk art, and outsider art. He primarily works with house paint, found objects, recycled musical instruments, reclaimed wood, and repurposed materials. Andy's parents were antique collectors, and this influence throughout his youth helped shape him artistically. He finds his inspiration from surfing, music, Florida's coastal landscape, and wildlife.
Andy loves the process of giving new life and purpose to broken, unwanted, and discarded objects. Through the use of recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed materials, he discovered parallels between his work and people. Most of us go through seasons of growth, trying to discover who we are and life's purpose. Andy illustrates that things and people have something in common in that hope can be found in new paths and second chances.
Andy and his wife have called Florida's Emerald Coast home since childhood. They married in 1999 and have five children. In his free time, you will likely find him surfing.
