Biography

Andrew Crawford (b. 1970 in Chatham, NJ) is a sculptor who works in metal, wood, and found objects. His goal is to match organic form with mechanical objects and to explore the tension between the natural versus the man-made. Crawford was born in New Jersey but moved with his family to the suburbs of Atlanta as a young boy.  His parents, who set up a workshop for him in their home, encouraged his early artistic endeavors in clay, drawing, music, and sculpture.  He received his B.F.A. in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993.  Crawford has received numerous public and private art commissions from institutions throughout the Southeast, including the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Brenau University (Gainesville, GA), Holder Properties (Atlanta, GA), Highlands Performing Arts Center (NC) and Federal Reserve Bank (Atlanta, GA). He has participated in solo and group shows at Bascome-Louise Gallery (Highlands, NC), Quinlan Gallery (Gainesville, GA), Museum of Design Atlanta, and Positive Space (New Orleans, LA), among others.  Crawford’s studio, The Andrew T. Crawford Ironworks, is located on Bowen Street in Northwest Atlanta, GA.
