Andrew Pike

“There are no mistakes in art – even accidents are perfect”

Having been a gardener in Camphill Duffcarrig, Gorey, for many years, Andrew wanted to pursue an artistic career. He studied art for two years in Ormonde College, Kilkenny before becoming one of the first artists to join the KCAT Studio. Andrew has travelled extensively to Holland, France, Germany, America, Australia, and Japan and these cultural exchanges are a great inspiration to his work. Though most well known for his painting, Andrew has award winning animations to his credit as well as co-designing The Big River parade with Sinéad Fahey and Macnas.

Andrew Pike - Waiting for Bucket

KCAT is thrilled to premier online a new animation by studio artist Andrew Pike. ‘Waiting for Bucket’ is a short animation film. In true Pike satirical style, five famous Irish writers, AE Russell, Bernard Shaw, Brendan Behan, WB Yeats and Samuel Beckett with Gussy all have an encounter at a bus stop.
