Andrew Brown grew up in Baltimore, MD, the son of educators. In 2005, he completed his B.A. with Honors in painting at Towson University.  After completing his degree, he moved to Shanghai, China for the next four years, working as an English instructor at several different universities and schools.  Upon acceptance to Louisiana State University (LSU) for graduate school, he moved back to the United States. He completed his M.F.A. in painting and drawing during the spring of 2013, receiving the Dean's Medal for academic excellence. After completing his degree, he worked as an adjunct instructor of foundations at LSU. Since 2014, Andy has worked as a full-time Instructor and graduate faculty member in the Department of Art and Art History at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL.

He has exhibited his paintings and drawings nationally and internationally, with over 60 juried exhibitions and a number of solo shows around the US and in Europe.

Brown states, "In the act of looking back at memories there is an inherent shuffling of time, place and importance. What was once seemingly unimportant becomes quite important, events that took place in one location are transported to another, and the overall chronology bends and shifts. My current work is a focused remembrance of outwardly insignificant events, how they overlap, merge and add personal weight to other memories that have preceded or followed. Searching memories allows for a consideration of what makes them central, and how they are positioned within a greater context. During this search one is able to step back and see the permeability of experience. In a time when technology has allowed an almost immediate distribution of ideas and events, where connections are being drawn between eating habits and pop icons, the map that might diagrams one’s experience is increasingly multifarious. I want to step back, take a look around, and ask the question. Is everything all right here?"
