His works are held in hundreds of private and public collections worldwide. Andrew Osta’s paintings do not easily fit into one category. The artist attempts to create works that have “life”. His paintings impart this “life” to the place in which they are displayed, contributing to a sense of well being. The paintings portray an eclectic mix of influences, including Orthodox Christian iconography, vibrant Mexican whimsy, and indigenous shamanistic symbolism. Collectors of Andrew Osta’s work are almost never satisfied with just one painting. Collections of five or more paintings are common. If these paintings speak to you, please do not hesitate to contact the artist!
While primarily a visual artist, Andrew Osta is also passionate about writing songs and books. He has taught himself to play piano and guitar and has been writing and recording songs for over 20 years. He has collaborated with Grammy nominated musician Michael Hoppe, creating an album cover and writing the lyrics to two of Michael’s songs. He has also published three non-fiction books, with a fourth coming. He loves nature and animals and currently lives and works in Oaxaca, Mexico with his wife and children, among dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, and tropical fish. Studio visits are welcome!
