The Art Of Noise: Andy Hemming

Sometime ago now, I started a series of features called "The Art of Noise" where I focused on specific album artwork. I spoke to the bands and the artists as way to explore the processes behind designing it and how it relates to the music. 

If you've read any of those previous pieces, you'll notice that this feature shares the same name, though I've decided to change how it's made up. For this first feature I have decided to focus on one artist and while I've featured work by Andy in my previous iteration of the series, I felt compelled to include more of his cover and poster art here (apologies Andy for my slowness in putting this together).

Without further ado and rambling from me, here are some of Andy's creations:-

(Abandon Cause - Abandon Cause cover art)

(Abandon Cause - Power Failure cover art)

(Arkless - Arkless cover art)

(Carson Wells - Wonderkid cover art)

(Carson Wells - No Relic cover art)

(Koss - The Afterbirth cover art)

(Soul Structure - National Health cover art)

(What Price, Wonderland? - It Is True, It Is Shakey cover art)

(Asthenia/Human Hands/Arkless 206 UK Tour poster)

(Healing Powers/Arkless 2017 EU Tour poster)

(I Recover/Segwei/Sunday Bloody Sunday/Asthenia 2017 Japan Show poster)

(Slowcoaches - 2017 UK/EU Tour poster)

(Fire As A Metaphor - 2015 Nottingham Show poster)

(Vested Interest Presents... Sudden Death #12016 London poster)

This is by no means an exhaustive look at Andy's art but I hope that you've enjoyed looking at some of it and hopefully you'll check the bands he's worked with if you haven't already.
