Andrew Dean HyderProfessional Artist
Andrew Dean Hyder is a blend of artist, scientist and inventor. In fact, for Hyder, the line between technology and Art seems to always have been blurred. From his development of sculpting and mold making materials, and from paper casting, to gallery construction both offline and online, his art seems to be the result of an acute need to problem solve. Interestingly, some of his software engineering inventions have significantly impacted e-commerce and the evolution of the Internet.
As the author of two technical textbooks in the areas of finance and technology, a common thread is found throughout: "Technology is art, and art is a form of technology."
in 1999 Hyder founded Subjex Corporation
(SBJX) a once publicly traded company, as well as a long list of technology platforms such as:Subjex Word EnginePortfolioCatalog.comAindee.comArt Class and a Wine GlassPromanatein
Currently residing in central Florida, Hyder is an art marketing instructor for the Hyder Gallery
Center for Fine Art in Historic Downtown Sanford Florida. Hyder teaches a hand selected
group of artists how to become their own artist agent and expand into many galleries.
In addition to developing online marketing campaigns for some of the worlds most successful modern artists. Hyder's own fine art has been collected and exhibited throughout North America.
A world traveler, moved by a love of form captured in sculpture, he has studied ancient civilizations their art and architecture, the “technology” and methods used to express their genius. His travel experiences collected from such out of the way places as Yalta/Crème, Ukraine (an unsuspecting Art Mecca) and Vienna, Austria has heavily influenced his art.
Currently focused upon the century’s old art of Playing Cards, Hyder expresses his work, in bas-relief cast stone, challenging the viewer’s perception of depth. "Like canvas come to life, his art jumps out of the two and into the three dimensional."
"Being a painter and sculptor, for me is passion put on canvas, left in clay or stone." said Hyder. "My inspiration comes from nature, a nostalgic love of a simpler time, when the world lived more in balance with nature. This is kind of a dichotomy because of my love of technology. I guess you could say being an artist is my way of finding my own balance."
