Author(s): Andrew Baines
On a childhood holiday to the UK, Andrew ventured on to the London underground, to be greeted by a sea of bowler hat wearing suits, heading off to their 9 - 5 grind. The corporate battery hen! The image became hard copy in his young mind, while vowing never to conform to this servile way of life. Thirty years down the track, Andrew is a successful surrealist artist, painting & writing about conformity & escapism. Andrew's images & quotes featured in this book mirror his long held beliefs.
Based in Australia, Andrew has gained international recognition for his surreal photo shoots & inspired paintings. A finalist in many art prizes, he exhibits his work internationally. In 2011, Andrew was commissioned by Wirra Wirra Winery to paint a label for their Scrubby Rise series. Over one million bottles have been distributed internationally. Since then Wirra Wirra has had an ongoing relationship with Andrew and are proud to sponsor this book. YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItLFEsHeXlI
