Andy Hope 1930 (born Andreas Hofer) is a German artist.

Signature[edit]

Since 1998, most of the artist's works have been signed "Andy Hope 1930" (although at that time the artist was still named Andreas Hofer).[1]

Style[edit]

Hope's style borrows from Thriftstore painting, comic books and science fiction illustration, mixing these elements with artistic positions such as those of Kasimir Malevich, James Ensor, Marcel Duchamp and Paul Klee. He creates over-paintings, collages and cut-outs: using pencils, coloured pencils and felt-tip pens, oil, enamel, and acrylic, on such supports as cardboard, paper, canvas, recycled materials and hand-made tapestries. He also makes films and sculptures, and text too plays a major role in his works. His subject matter encompasses superheroes, dinosaurs, devils, spaceships and historical villains.[2][3]

Phantoms[edit]

Hope frequently paints over the top of already painted canvases, sometimes allowing parts of the earlier picture to remain visible.[4] Other works are cut into, removing the vital features such as eyes or whole faces.
