We are happy to bring the work of Marc Andrewinto the Metaverse. Born in Toulouse, France on August 13, 1991, Marc Andre is a multi disciplinary artist. Originally from Paris , he grew up frequenting museums and traveling to different countries across the Pan-African regions with his mother. This had a profound impact on Andre, and his creative practices. At 14, he moved to the US to join his father, where he began a different life and pursued learning English.
While in the US Andre built a career as a self taught producer and rapper building a name in the underground hip hop scene in D.C. In 2015 he decided to move to New York to pursue his artistic career, where he began modeling for the likes of Kanye West (Yeezy season 3 , Yohji Yamamoto and Heron Preston). In 2021 Andre began making a name for himself as a painter, a practice in which his true roots intertwine, as the reckoning with the African diaspora is found in the work.
Andre hosted his first solo exhibition Summer 2021, African Inferno, in Brooklyn. The show was taken to the contemporary art market fair in the Hamptons later that summer. He has sold paintings to renowned artists such as Tim Okamura , Julia Lang and rapper Westside Gunn.
Marc Andre is also a creator of digital art, harnessing his drawings skills and bringing his African knowledge to the US contemporary art world at large.
He is currently a resident artist at Black Wall Street Gallery in New York City.
