He applies texture first to the substrate, because he likes how the texture affects how the color looks and is applied later. He uses additive and subtractive techniques as he paints. He works in thin layers of paint, usually adding color from light to dark.
This way, he can use water drips, a rag, other objects, even his hands to distress or remove the current layer of paint, Andy Hahnrevealing what is below. He finds that this process results in a more unique and interesting piece of art, as it isn’t just what he adds to the art, but what he subtracts along the way that makes the final piece so visually interesting. His metal wall art stems from his affinity for steel. Andy is drawn to the clean, simple and industrial aspect of it. It is so strong, utilitarian, modern and beautiful … yet delicate. Basic environmental conditions can deteriorate it so easily.

He combines metal with industrial rivets, paint, found objects and various materials to create art that is as unique as the materials used to make it.
