Andy Gilmore’s Kaleidoscope

Unique. Col­or­ful. Pat­terns. Won­der­ful.

Just some words that can be used to describe his visu­als. But that’s the thing, those are just “some words.” You’ll have to see for your­self and feel what you may feel per­son­al­ly from them.

A mas­ter of col­or and geo­met­ric com­po­si­tion, Andy Gilmore’s work is often char­ac­ter­ized as kalei­do­scop­ic and hyp­not­ic, though it could just as well be described as visu­al­ly acoustic, his often com­plex arrange­ments ref­er­enc­ing the scales and melodies in music.

Gilmore’s jour­ney toward this mas­ter­ful style fol­lowed a long and wind­ing road. He char­ac­ter­izes his pur­suit of edu­ca­tion as a tan­gled web, not­ing the book­stores, bak­eries, and the­aters where he worked were of more impor­tance than the schools he attend­ed in pur­suit of his BFA, which he received from SUNY Empire State Col­lege.

After fin­ish­ing school, Gilmore relo­cat­ed to San Clemente, Cal­i­for­nia, where he took up work for FourStar Dis­tri­b­u­tion, resiz­ing print ads for C1RCA Footwear and Forum Snow­boards. It would serve as his intro­duc­tion to the com­put­er and lay the foun­da­tion for a career in dig­i­tal art and design.

Andy Gilmore’s exten­sive list of clients includes Wired Mag­a­zine, The New York Times, Fast Com­pa­ny, Wall­pa­per*, Warp Records, and yes, Ghost­ly Inter­na­tion­al. He cur­rent­ly lives and works in Rochester, New York.
