A&A Photographic Arts is an online gallery designed to showcase the works of photographic artist Andrew Chianese. Based out of Dallas, Texas, our gallery works to bring the unique art of Photographic Arts to the world. We have worked with individual patrons, a private school, and even restaurants to bring art to the community.
Originally trained as an archaeologist and middle school educator. Andrew quickly discovered the hidden meanings and beauty of myth and culture portrayed in art. In 2012 he went from a fine art collector to a fine art artist. Self-taught in the photographic arts, the use of imagery from abstract landscapes to highly detailed macro subjects are solely determined by the stories, both modern and ancient, present in each image.
Not being particular about whether the images are in black and white or vibrant color, he has said, “Color, or the lack of, is a complex tool for the artist to help tell the story that the subject is trying to convey to us. The details of what we see or cannot see bring the drama of each story.”
The limits photography grants upon the artist only inspires more creativity. While he manipulates the image in a variety of forms, filters or fashions; He’s forced to use the underlying picture as nature gives it. It is this particular creative challenge that Andrew finds fascinating about media of photographic art.
