About Andy Jouan

Having grown up on the island of Jersey and very much being part of the beach and music culture on the island, my love of nature has influenced me as I look to express our connection with the "whole" a definite spiritual element as I use abstract art and music to encourage the viewer/listener to examine how they feel and go within themselves, meet “The Observer” rather than distract them with a specific focus within the work itself.

I moved to London in 2009 and in 2013 I attended classes held by artist Nick Malone in his studio https://www.londonartclasses.com/ where I soon found a hidden talent to express myself through my art, he encouraged me to study the likes of Bacon, Dali and Kandinsky as well as Turner but hope I am very much expressing my own style in my work.

Working mostly now with Acrylic on Canvas I enjoy connecting directly with the art where ever possible by painting with my hands, the connection of self with the paint and canvas I feel brings out the depth of work I am trying to express, of course brushes, sponges and cloths all come into creating a piece too.

In 2015 I released my first EP “Soulsearch” being an aspiring Guitarist/Singer Songwriter – my acclaim to fame the EP reached the Top 10 in the Reverbnation Folk charts, along with an Akademia Award for "Best Folk EP Nov 2015"

Now in 2017 I decided a move back to the coast was needed and have just arrived in Boscombe, Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. A great believer in the synchronicity of life I soon found a fantastic creative community in the area and have joined the fun at The Factory Studios (http://www.factorystudios.co.uk/). I look forward to expanding my creativity and working within the community. New directions in art and music as I hope to record more on site and send out some acoustic sets.

I can be found on the normal Social Media as well.
