Andrew Ingamells – Architectural Artist

Born in 1956 and trained in London at The University of the Arts, Andrew Ingamells has, over the last twenty years, carved a niche as England’s, and perhaps Europe’s, leading artist specialising in architectural subjects.

Continuing in a tradition of neo classical draughtsmanship made popular by Piranesi in the eighteenth century, Ingamells’ exacting eye and close attention to detail demonstrate that he is worthy of comparison to Renaissance and Neo Classical masters, yet his finished images have a distinctly contemporary feel.  His chosen medium of copperplate etching is virtually unchanged in over 500 years.  His prints are made in exactly the way as those of Rembrandt, Goya or more recently Picasso and Matisse; and are produced in strictly limited editions by master printmakers, after which the plate is destroyed.

During his distinguished career, Ingamells has been commissioned to illustrate many buildings of historical and architectural significance, including: The Bank of England; Nicholas Hawksmoor’s seven London churches; The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London; Tate Britain and Le Theatre de L’Opera, Paris.

His work has been exhibited at The Royal Academy, London, and is held in many important public and private collections, including: English Heritage; Farrers, the Queen’s lawyers; The Guildhall Library, London; The Paul Mellon Centre for British Art; The Museum of London; HRH The Prince of Wales; The Tate Gallery.

Andrew Ingamells lives in Hertford, England with his wife and two daughters.
