Andy O’Rourke

Andy is a lapsed Mancunian who has lived in South Wales since coming there to go to college in 1991. Much of his work is up and down the beautiful South Wales valleys, but he’s often lucky enough to travel to all sorts of interesting places for his work including Spain, Malta, UAE, Germany, France and the Canary Islands.

Artist Profile


Artist since: 1997, Newport, South Wales, United Kingdom

Andy O’Rourke has spent his past 20+ years drawing, painting, sculpting, spraying and designing all sorts of stuff. Much of this work has been as lead artist with Malarky, an arts company he founded in 1997 which is primarily focused on community projects.

In his role as community artist, Andy worked with thousands of people helping them create all manner of artwork, everywhere from Aberdare to Abu Dhabi. Alongside his community practice he has continually developed his skills and interests in mural art, illustration, anamorphic art, augmented reality and lightpainting photography.

Andy likes to mix things up and try new techniques and media to keep my work fresh and interesting. I’m happiest when spraying a huge mural one day and making a tiny canvas in acrylic paints the next.

Andy’s exceptional interest for novel technology turned him into one of the early adopters of working with novel Luximprint technology for creating exceptional artworks.
