Born in 1956, Andrew Ingamells trained at St. Albans School of Art and the London College of Printing before embarking on a career as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. It was during this time that he started making drawings of individual buildings and architectural landscapes of London. In 1987 he was invited to Clarendon Graphics, the print studio set up by Anthony Benjamin, to make Aquatint Etchings, from some of his architectural drawings. Here began his love affair with a traditional printing method that has barely changed in centuries, continuing a neo classical draughtsmanship made popular by Piranesi.
Andrew has worked in close collaboration with master printmakers Pete Kosowicz and Simon Marsh, and with fine art publisher Martin Village. He has exhibited at many London venues including CCA Galleries, The Grosvenor Gallery and The Royal Academy. His work his held in corporate and public collections including the Tate Gallery, HRH the Prince of Wales, English Heritage, National Trust, The Paul Mellon Centre of British Art, Shell Oil, and the City of London Guildhall Library, who put on a retrospective exhibition of his work.
