Please join us for Andrea von Bujdoss’s AKA Queen Andrea’s solo exhibition “Dusk Till Dawn” at AHA Fine Art, 139 Eldridge Street, NYC.
Queen Andrea’s solo exhibition Dusk Till Dawn features new paintings inspired by her endless love of geometry, typography and New York City’s horizon.
Along with her typography pieces, this exhibition presents her recent forays into a complex and colorful world of dynamic geometry, as in her piece Red High (shown left), acrylic on canvas. The paintings on display share a common theme of vibrant color and detailed geometric gradations that evoke the subtle, but dramatic color of the sky, transitioning from dawn and dusk and vice-versa. Queen Andrea’s use of a multifaceted and innovative color palette is a growing theme in her new compositions, Expressed through her boisterous, yet perfectly calculated interplay of color and geometry, her work is reminiscent of 1980’s pop art graphics and patterns.
Queen Andrea’s new typography paintings feature chiseled and geometric letters spelling out popular hip-hop and pop culture phrases, such as Hustle Hard (shown below), projecting both positivity and personal empowerment.
Queen Andrea is building a reputation as an extremely dedicated and innovative typographist and visual artist. Her recent projects include large-scale murals commissioned by mural programs such as, The LISA Project, Wall Therapy, O’nou Tahiti Graffiti Festival, JMZ Walls, Jersey City Beautification Project, and more. Additionally, Queen Andrea was selected for the prestigious Bonnaroo Music Festival and the historic 191st Street Tunnel Beautification Project in collaboration with The City of New York and the MTA (Mass Transit Authority).
This is Queen Andrea’s second solo exhibition with AHA Fine Art and her fifth solo exhibit in NYC. Queen Andrea is a native New Yorker, raised in SoHo, Manhattan. Queen Andrea has been deeply inspired by the urban landscape from an early age. She paints with some of the most prolific “old school” graffiti writers and actively taught herself graffiti by painting on the streets, on canvas and on paper. Queen Andrea has consistently pursued, for almost twenty years, her graffiti and typography skill-set, which has evolved her graphic style into fine art and a vivid visual vocabulary.
