Andrew Maughan

 
 

Andrew Maughan (United Kingdom,1987) graduated from Northumbria University in 2009, where he received a first class BFA with honours. Maughan’s artworks interrogate humour, the contemporary political landscape, class culture and the media that amplifies them. Drawing on histories of vanitas painting and monumental portraiture, Maughan invests the simple tropes of cinema, street, and summer holiday with surreal humour. The London based artist is currently a Royal Academy of Arts student where he is completing his MA. His works have been extensively exhibited in the UK: London, Glasgow, Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Blackpool and also in Detroit, USA. Recent exhibitions include Premiums at the Royal Academy in London (2020), and The Return of The Great Assassin at NewBridge Project (2019).
