'The most inspiration I get from people around me, the whole nature of humanity and my vision of the world. I'm sending a message to each person that looks at my work. I feel that true art have to have a meaning behind it, not just to be a pretty picture, most people don't want to think, unfortunately, and I am trying to show naked reality of our lives. I am not trying to get anybody depressed, but accept the way it is and try to change it or make a piece with it, acknowledge that nothing and nobody is perfect and paintings don't have to just cheer you up. I'm reading a lot of psychology related information, observing people and do a lot of self-digging, that influences me a lot' Vee Andrew mostly paint with acrylics, oil paints and draw graphics.
