Andrej Getman is a visual artist who was born in Klaipeda, Lithuania. Since 2005 he lives and works in Dublin where he has a studio in Mart Gallery & Studios in Harold’s Cross. He holds a BA in Fine Art and a Masters in Fine Art - Painting from the National College of Art and Design. 

 

He explores the themes of urbanisation, socio-political injustice & modern culture. Influenced by his immediate environment; the inner city Dublin landscape, he primarily works using oils on canvas and mixed media.

His most recent work was focused on an empty apartment building in his local area which could and should have been utilized to reduce Ireland’s housing crisis. 

His work is held in private collections in Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium and France.
