andrew godber Artist Bio:

Andrew Godber was schooled in the traditional method of sign writing, layout and design and letter construction. The fundamentals of sign painting is not only a feature of his work, but it is also the basis of his painting technique and skill. Andrew says that the style of his work draws influence from the fading, cracked and peeling hand painted signage that is so prevalent on the walls and parapets of old buildings and warehouses in his home town of Melbourne Australia. He believes that these signs are now like a shrine to the sign writers of the past, but have also over time become something wonderfully new, something removed from their original purpose of advertising, letter shapes bleaching through letter shapes, fusing, mutating and becoming new letter forms, fading and feeling until eventually ( sadly ) disappearing altogether.
