Andreas Goff

Fine Arts Painter | Sculpture

Goff is known for his highly collectible Afro-centric and Native American inspired sculptures. Born in New England, a graduate of American University, with a BA in Political Science; Andreas’ social conscience was awakened and nurtured by the civil rights and anti-war movements during the turbulent 60's. As an artist-in-residence for the state of New Mexico for four years, his residencies have taken him from the Visually Impaired School in Alamogordo to San Juan Community College, and quaint Spanish villages like Questa and Mora, as well as residencies at Navajo boarding schools. Andreas is an avid petroglyph hunter. These ancient designs frequently find their way onto his pottery and sculpture. He has sketched and photographed rock art on the big island of Hawaii, Vancouver Island, the Olympic Peninsula, throughout tile southwest, Missouri, Lake Erie, and throughout Venezuela, Peru and The Sahara.  

Goff’s deep respect and admiration for African and Native American people and their approach to art and life, inspires him to strive to capture each cultures’ sense of beauty and pride  in each of his creations. His sculptures are in private collections of many noteworthy celebrities and museums throughout the nation, including the most renowned author/poet, Dr. Maya Angelou, legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, the Thurgood Marshall Center and 1998 Black History Month featured artist; Orlando Museum of Art.
