Andy DeComyn is a public artist who specialises in commemorative sculpture. After studying Art and Design at Bournville College of Art in 1985 he has been practising as an artist in many different media. It wasn’t until he returned to study for a degree in 1997, that he made the move into public art. In 1999 he created the Shot at Dawn memorial as a gift to the families of the soldiers who were executed, for offences such as cowardice, in WW1. Since then he has worked on many commissions for commemorative sculpture, but is about to embark on another self directed project.
