Andrew Drummond (b. 1951) lives in Christchurch and holds an Honours degree in Fine Art from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. Between 1992 – 2003 Drummond was a Senior Lecturer in Sculpture at Ilam School of Fine Arts at Canterbury University, Christchurch.
Drummond has established a career that embraces sculpture, installation, video, drawing, and photography. He is a craftsman, an environmental advocate, an inventor. His early practice saw him emerge as a pioneer of performance art, highlighting disquiet about important environmental and political issues in the 1970s and 1980s. Today, his work is held in various public and private collections and he has been commissioned to create a number of outdoor public sculptures. Whether creating meditative sculptural installations using natural and found materials or a large-scale dynamic kinetic sculpture, his work speaks to the natural environment and continues to engage and intrigue.
