We had the good fortune of connecting with Andy Brown and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andy, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I didn’t really have a ‘plan’ as how i got to doing what I do professionally. It happened very organically. I had been painting baseball ballparks and culture around the world for around 8 years. I found it an interesting way to understand the culture of Korea, where I was living at the time. I then started exploring leagues in other countries in Asia and then moved towards Latin America and the USA. After a few years my art work started to gain more momentum and attention with the players who were in my paintings getting in touch wanting to buy them and find out more about my work and what i did. It seemed a possibility that i could do it professionally and survive – to what extent i never knew. so I decided in 2018 to leave my job (teaching art in Korea) to paint all 30 major league baseball ballparks live the following summer. I was never sure what it would lead to but I am very happy that I am still doing it to this day.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a British artist. I paint ballparks and baseball culture live around the world. To this date I have painted in 12 different countries and leagues. My work has been recognized by Buckingham Palace, ESPN, BBC, Fox News and more. There is also a question about my work in the board game Trivial Pursuit.
I got to where I am today following the belief I had in my work, my passion for art and my confidence in my abilities.
Every painting is a challenge in which I learn more about life and what is in front of me.
I am the only person to have painted all 30 MLB ballparks live, each one during 9 innings. I have painted over 100 ballparks live to date.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
