As well as celebrating the icons that are front and centre in his artwork, Andy Caddick also populates the background of his art with a menagerie of colours and textural details which is where his inspiration in urban art comes into play.

The animals are depicted with striking accuracy, in everything from the patterns of the fur to the spark of energy in the eyes. These would be a welcome addition to any animal lover's collection.
When it comes to the portraits of cultural icons, you will often see that they blend realism and abstract influence. The abstract elements come in with Andy's use of logo style patterns which emerge from the background and bring an effortless dynamism to the piece. The great skill is that Andy is able to introduce these abstract patterns and graffiti style embellishments without having this distract from the star of the show. Evident in his work is always the focus and the care which is directed towards the subject. Whether this subject is an icon of film or music, or indeed a majestic animal, they are paid ultimate respect through the level of detail which Andy's paintbrush or airbrush creates.
