Kindred Studio is the multi-disciplinary moniker of Los Angeles based Australian Illustrator, Designer and Art Director Andrew Fairclough.
After a misspent youth completing a Business Degree, Andrew moved on to designing skate and snowboard graphics in between bouts of self-instruction and full time work in a design agency.
Andrew’s work is inspired by mid-century spot illustrations and design as well as vintage sci-fi, comics, surrealism, DIY art culture, and the textural wonders of degraded print.
Often working with a restricted colour palette Andrew’s work seeks to hint at the nostalgia and tactility of found art, whilst also creating something completely new.
In early 2016 Andrew founded True Grit Texture Supply as a one stop shop for high quality tools and resources for the texturally minded creative.
Andrew is available anytime to discuss upcoming projects as well as the textural wonders of mid-90's photocopiers.
