Andrew Stark is an Assistant Professor of Practice at North Dakota State University where he teaches Foundations, Drawing, Advanced Level Drawing Studio,Figure Drawing,Graphic Design and Illustration.  He was born on the North Shore in Two Harbors, MN and was raised in Fargo, ND where he began drawing and creating as a child.  Greatly involved in music, theater, and art through his young adulthood, Andrew continued his passion for drawing and painting throughout his post-secondary education.  He earned his B.F.A. in 2003 from Minnesota State University Moorhead and his M.F.A. with an Emphasis in Painting from the University of North Dakota in 2009.  He has taught Basic Drawing I & II and Drawing Studio II at UND and Basic Drawing I & II, Life Drawing, and Foundation Design at MSUM. Andrew is also involved in community education classes at the Plains Art Museum where he teaches Drawing and Acrylic Fundamentals & Color Theory.

Andrew’s work varies greatly in style and technique and moves between abstraction and figuration, reveling in the materiality of painting/drawing materials and mediums.  His work has explored a wide range of conceptual concerns including reinterpretation of the modernist sublime, impermanence and transcendence, and the human condition as it relates to the landscape and environment.  

His work has been exhibited extensively regionally and can be found in numerous regional and national private collections.  His public and corporate collections include Minnesota State University Moorhead, University of North Dakota, TMI Hospitality, Vogel Law Firm, Dawson Insurance, Gate City Bank, West Acres, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and the Hotel Donaldson.
