Ascendo Coffee is proud to once again feature Andrew Wilkie for March’s Art After Dark. Andrew was recently named a 2017 Belle Foundation of Cultural Development grant recipient for his work. All of the images have been created with ground coffee on canvas. You can get an idea of Andrew’s work @artgroundedincoffee on Instagram. However, these images should be seen in person as they have texture that most photos cannot capture. 

Artist Bio:

Andrew Wilkie has lived with his family in Morro Bay for the past 20+ years, but was born in Denver, Colorado.  Raised in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, he developed a love for the outdoors and those things reflecting nature's beauty and various moods.  His family respected science and the arts equally.  From his earliest memories, he was encouraged to express himself through music and the visual arts such as: ceramics, stained glass, batik, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting.

         Art Grounded In Coffee was born from Andrew's passion for coffee- the taste, aroma, and texture produced from the ground beans.  The artwork of various subjects is created using the unique medium of coffee grounds.  His works have sold from coast to coast and led to collaborative projects with the likes of Firestone Walker Brewery.  Around 30% of Andrew's creative output is currently poured into private consignments. It is his hope that you enjoy his works and the unique material used to create them.
