Previous Shows: 2014: Soft Eyes: Andy Moon Wilson
Andy Moon Wilson was born in 1974 in Blacksburg, VA while his parents were in graduate school at VA Tech. His love for art in general, and drawing in particular developed at an early age - frequently getting into trouble at school for “doodling too much in class.” He grew up in Northern Virginia, and spent a lot of time on his family’s farms in the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia. His father was a biologist and nuclear engineers for the NRC, and an Olympic-level marksman. Andy went to college at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, where his mother taught English literature and education. He graduated with honors in both studio art and military history from BVU in 1998.
Andy attended graduate school at the University of Iowa for drawing and painting, where he met his future wife, painter Jiha Moon, who was also in the program. When he graduated in 2011, Andy moved back to the DC area, and immediately began a successful career as a full-time custom carpet and rug designer, which is on going. He also began exhibiting his artwork at local and regional galleries, and has been developing his body of work and showing regularly all over the United States ever since. He is currently represented by Curator’s Office in Washington DC, and Get This Gallery, in Atlanta.
Andy Moon Wilson lives and works in Atlanta GA with his wife Jiha Moon and son Oliver.
