Andrew “ana’ Alu” Hollimon

Andrew (Andy) Hollimon, hereafter Ana`Alu, creates and develops from the same artistic creative vision and mission.
Ana`alu develops with a personal devotion reaching the eye as a portal to individual sensory perception which in turn
generates interest as the foundation for piquing consumer interest. He creates with a methodology that embodies
detail, unfiltered and unrestricted use of color, focused like a novel theme with visuals that deliver a message often
delineated via the title of the piece. A personal mission is to capture an audience, entertain with visuals and offer a
visual reward to any viewer who views the piece in close proximity. “Wow, as I look closer I didn’t see that from a
few feet away!” Ana`alu isn’t a specialty or theme artists. His creative processes are applied to wildlife pieces,
landscape scenes, moonscapes, figurative pieces, patterned abstract works, and much more frequent real life storied
pieces( COVID) when employs Realism.. His works are produced in acrylic and oil colors, use of the palette knife,
acrylic gesso, modeling paste; on canvas. Ana Alu’s background, despite degree matriculation through the level of an
