Art Brokerage: Andrew Lakey French Artist: Born 1959 Chateauroux, France - Artist Andy Lakey is best known for his 2000 paintings of Angels, created between January 1, 1990 and December 31, 1999. Lakey is a painter, focusing on original works which includes angels, hearts, language, portraits, and flora and fauna color studies titled "Brilliant Nature" or, as this cycle is collectively called, "Unencountered." Without any formal training Lakey began a prodigious artistic odyssey, painting original works in a variety of media. Over two decades, he has produced thousands of paintings, sculptures, and drawings. In 1999, Lakey began to suffer chronic health issues from overexposure to toxins in paint, resulting in multiple and ongoing surgeries, and took a hiatus from his painting while focusing upon other outlets developing the "Unencountered" characters, including books of abstract art-poems. He still continues to paint, but wears protective gear for health reasons. Other projects that will take him out of the studio soon will include sculpture, drawing and directing films. In 2010 Andy Lakey has now begun a seminal endeavor - a new, two-stage painting cycle in his studio. The cycle consists of Studies, the preparatory work which is his current focus, and Paintings, the eventual art works that will result from his Studies. Andy Lakey passed away recently.
