Giant Robot New York announces Art is a Smile That Gives You a Hug – an exhibition by Andrew Jeffrey Wright opening on Saturday, November 19th from 6:30 -10PM. Andrew Jeffrey Wright will be showcasing original paintings, drawings, screen prints, photos and collages of his most recent work.
As the founding member of Space1026, a creative community / gallery in Philadelphia, Andrew Jeffrey Wright is a front-runner for the Pennsylvania’s burgeoning, underground art scene. Wright’s artwork exemplifies a range of concepts using a kaleidoscope of colors, pop-culture references, and absurd humor. The multi-faceted artist procures his adventurous style working in mediums ranging from animation, video and photography to painting, print making, and sculpture. In keeping with his fortitude for zine production, Wright is creating a limited edition run of hand-made books especially for his GRNY opening.
To add to his notoriety, Andrew Jeffrey Wright has worked with an impressive list of artists. Collaborating with Clare Rojas on an animated short called “The Manipulators,” the duo earned awards at the New York Underground Film Festival and New York Comedy Film Festival. Along with Rojas, AJW teamed up with Leif Goldberg and Barry McGee to produce the Outerspace Hillbilly group show in San Francisco. Showing with other high-caliber names such as Marcel Dzama, Jim Houser, Paper Rad, and Ed Templeton, Wright’s artwork is appreciated coast to coast and overseas. Giant Robot New York is grateful to host the mastermind work of Andrew Jeffrey Wright’s Art is a Smile That Gives You a Hug.
