Andrew Nicholls graduated from Curtin University of Technology with First Class Honours in Visual Arts in 1999. He has worked as curator, lecturer and writer for Australian Art Review, Australian Art Collector, Curtin University, FORM, the Art Gallery of WA, the West Australian, the Australian National University, SCOOP, Artrage and the Fremantle Art Centre. Andrew has exhibited across Australia, in Italy and the United Kingdom and he has a range of limited-edition products distributed internationally through art homewares company, Third Drawer Down. He has curated exhibitions for numerous Australian arts organisations, including the Art Gallery of Western Australia (WA), FORM (WA), Object Gallery (NSW) and ArtBack (NT). His work explores the Sentimental, in particular how this marginalized sensibility forms an under-acknowledged drive underpinning mainstream culture, and he employs a Camp aesthetic to critique how power and morality have been played out through aesthetics, historically. In 2009 he published a 10-year retrospective catalogue of his drawings. Nicholls is represented by Boutwell Draper Gallery, Sydney.

For Rounds, Andrew has written an essay on Tim Carter.
