Andrew Macara

Andrew Macara, born 1944

Andrew Macara was born in Derbyshire . Although studying for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives’ School of Painting, he considers himself largely self-taught.

Macara was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1981 and, in 1984, was elected to the New English Art Club. His paintings are shown at the Royal British Artists (RBA) London art exhibitions and are also regularly exhibited at other leading London Art Galleries, including the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition. He has undertaken several painting commissions for public and private modern British art collectors, including a series of work for Sir Anthony and Lady Bamford, the Scott Bader Company, the New Parliamentary Building at Westminster and the Hilton Hotel Group corporate headquarters.

Amongst his many art awards are the Sir Huw Weldon, Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibition and the Brian Sewell, Gileas Auty and Lord Palumbos choice at the Discerning Eye Exhibition. Andrew was awarded the coveted De Lazlo art medal in 1985 and, more recently, at the RBA in 2005.

Andrew Macara continues to travel extensively, gathering images for paintings from around the world, from his well known beach scenes to his much sought after snow and ski subjects, but his native Derbyshire continues to feature in many paintings.
