50084 Self-Portrait with Phantom Twin (Andrea Creaspo, 2017)
Andrea Crespo

Andrea Crespo

Born in 1993, in the United States 

Lives and works in New York (United States)

Andrea Crespo's fascinating world is populated by a variety of characters and avatars that feature in animated films, prints on fabric, drawings and installations.

Crespo completed her BFA at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 2015. In the same year she exhibited at the Swiss Institute in New York and took part in several events at international institutions. Moving beyond current assertions on identity, the body, gender and digital, her anticipatory work rejects categorisation and suggests alternatives drawn from subcultures and amateur online art platforms such as DeviantArt.
