Andrea von Bujdoss (AKA "Queen Andrea") is a New York City based fine artist, illustrator, graffiti artist and graphic designer. A native New Yorker raised in the vibrant Soho neighborhood of Manhattan, Andrea has been inspired by the urban landscape from an early age.
As a young adult, she befriended some of the most prolific old school graffiti writers, and also earned her BFA in Graphic Design from Parsons School of Design. She then began a successful career, working for widely known brands who appreciate both the urban creative flavor of her work and her versatile and passionate knowledge of typography, branding and visual communication.
She is one of the most skilled female graffiti artists in the country, possessing an explosively creative style inspired by the excitement of the urban landscape. Her custom lettering portfolio has grown beyond graffiti and is a comprehensive collection of letter studies, design and portraiture.
The excitement, color, diversity and crazy energy of city life, and especially graffiti, is where Andrea finds her creative inspiration. Renegade cutting-edge artforms, sub-cultures and lifestyles that have sprang forth from an ever-changing urban metropolis give her the visual stimulus, the guts, and the urge to create and innovate. Her artistic style is influenced by themes of fame, the advertising age, the golden age of hip hop, funk and rap music, typography, geometry, signpainter lettering, superheroes, bling, diamonds and bombastic bright color.
She has been featured in major art shows, toy shows, magazines, books, fashion lines and brand collaborations. Andrea has curated and exhibited in numerous exhibitions nationally and is currently preparing for her New York City solo show debut at Fuse Gallery.
