Andy Council


As part of New Expressions 2, Bristol City Museums, Galleries and Archives commissioned a vibrant new work, 'Window on Bristol' by two nationally acclaimed Bristol artists, Andy Council and Luke Palmer.

‘Window on Bristol’ depicts the city today, featuring much-loved local landmarks and a few of the quirky sights of the city, that all help to make Bristol unique.

The artists collaborated on this commissioned work to create an image of the city in the 21st century, which is designed to resonate with M Shed visitors of all ages.

New Expressions 2 artist Andy Council uses his drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to dinosaurs mobilized by 'lots of stuff'. He was trained in the traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others.

Andy says: 'I use a combination of graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie'.
