Trevor Andrew aka Gucci Ghost (b. 1979; Nova Scotia, Canada). Based in Brooklyn, N.Y 2003- 2018, is a multi-disciplinary artist currently living in Los Angeles, California. Andrew is internationally known for his raw DIY aesthetic and pop art sensibility, his visual language is rooted in punk and skate culture of the 1990's that has adapted for our current state of media saturation.
For six years, he developed a body of work that challenges the typical portrayal of the Hollywood cowboy, reinterpreting nostalgic figures in fresh and thought-provoking manners. Combining his evolving journey and plethora of experiences, he draws on the contrast between his own childhood ideals of American culture with the realities he later faced living in the country, and unites his early love of skateboarding with his present day passion for art, music, and fashion.
Discussing the exhibit, Trevor Andrew explained: “I’ve been working on this new series since 2017, diving deep into it during the pandemic and painting a diverse range of characters. The creative process behind this new work is intentionally abrasive, deconstructing established ideas and reconstructing them through the medium of spray paint. Skateboard culture has been a major influence, giving me the freedom to experiment and be creative.
