André is a public health scientist and photographer. His art practice interrogates inequality in society, explores how urban spaces are utilised, and affect and influence peoples’ lives, and our connectedness to the soil. His interest and imagination are captured by the underbelly of society and its citizens at the fringe. His imagery disrupts the sublime narrative of photography and seeks to capture how the light etches the marks of society onto the photograph. He allow the images to narrate a story that invites the viewer into a paradoxically uncomfortable serene space.

He was a finalist in the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition (2021, 2019 and 2018); finalist in the Vuleka Art Competition (2021); finalist in the Thami Mnyele Art Competition (2018); and a runner up in the New Breed Art Competition (2017). He has participated in several group exhibitions. His work appears in various art collections including the Phatsoane Henney private art collection and the National Art Bank of South Africa.
