Andrew Munoz was born in London in 1967. He studied in the West Country, at Plymouth College of Art and Falmouth College of Art after living and working in Spain.

His work refers to traditional landscape and figure painting but the landscapes and figures represented in his paintings are contemporary. His various groups of work have dealt with violence (Violare), childhood memory, (The Picture Book Paintings), and social narrative (Cautionary Tales and Devolvers). All works are related through consistent themes of isolation, duality, and a dark seam existing within Human nature.

He is currently based in Bristol and exhibits regularly in the UK and abroad. His work is held in several public collections. He was elected as Royal West of England Academician (RWA) in 2014.
