I’ve been making art since before I knew what art was. I began drawing at age three on the walls in my house in Brooklyn. Then, one day my mother gave me a drawing pad and said, “Here Andrew, draw in this drawing pad.” Those were my formative years of art-making.
In my teenage years, my mother cleaned my brushes, took me to museums and offered me in-progress feedback on my work. In my college years, she attended all my art exhibitions and reprised her role as my biggest fan.
Her gifts of kindness and love have nurtured my expressions far beyond my formative years. I am grateful, inspired and I carry our forever love forward through the work.
I work across a diverse range of mediums and media. My art practice is grounded in drawing and painting and extends beyond to include poetry, music, video and performance. More and more, I find myself as the central character in my different projects.
