Charlie Anderson is a painter.
He celebrates the throwaway nature of contemporary culture by painting images from sources such as magazines, flyers, advertising and political campaigns.
By painting image on top of image and fragmenting the discernible text and forms, Anderson draws parallels to the fleeting nature of life.
The process of manually reproducing images from mass media echoes the history of painting as a form of documentation.
His use of the female form recalls the tradition of figurative painting in art.
Exhibitions include Edinburgh, Dubai, London, Berlin, Lugano, Bergen, Miami and Los Angeles. Anderson has been awarded the British Airways degree show prize (2009), shortlisted for the Jerwood Contemporary Painters (2010), and been awarded the Meyer Oppenheim Prize by the Royal Scottish Academy (2010). Notable collaborations include Ringo Starr, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, Speedy Graphito and The Dirty Tees.
