Andy Mercer is an artist from Lancaster (UK) known mainly for his atmospheric patchwork cityscapes using urban textures and imagery: rusting metal, graffiti, concrete, street signs, tower blocks, torn billboards. He draws much of his inspiration from the urban landscapes of north west England.
He regularly incorporates digital processes into his work, which often start out as conventional drawings. After scanning, he continues to work digitally, layering lines, colour and collage into work that is multi-sensory, rich and complex.
Mercer has said; I'm really just a landscape artist at heart.
