Early life and education
Andoe was born on December 5, 1955 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Andoe loved to draw as a child but he never created any artwork until he was in college. Andoe first realized that painting could be his career when he was enrolled in community college studying agricultural business. He was taking an elective class in art history when he learned about artists such as Robert Smithson and Dennis Oppenheim. He soon changed his major an eventually earned a Master's Degree in Art from the University of Oklahoma in 1981.
After college, Andoe began pushing his works on different art galleries in New York. He moved to New York in 1982.
He continues to paint and currently lives in New York City.
Andoe is known for his use of monochromatic canvases. He has stated that he wants to "reduce images to their blueprint."
