About Andrew Phua
Andrew was born in Indonesia and spent his time growing up between Pontianak (Borneo) and Melbourne Australia. From a very early age, his curiosity and sense of wonder about the world encouraged him to explore and express himself creatively through many mediums, including dance, music, film, fashion design, drawing, and photography.
After graduating from the Fashion Design program at Melbourne’s RMIT University, Andrew began creating his own clothing and documenting the process through photography and video. It was during this process that Andrew decided to pursue his passion for photography by enrolling in the Creative Photography program at Humber College in Toronto Canada. Since graduating, Andrew has uses his acute sense of observation and editing skills to create stunning photographs that record new and unusual sides of everyday objects and subjects, including his fashion designs.
Andrew's warm and easygoing personality instantly connects him with his subjects, rapidly earning their trust. His perfectionist spirit and determined drive is evident in his imaginative finished images.
Andrew's current project Get Fancy by APhua, blurs the line between his unique bow ties and art, such that Fashion becomes Art.
