Andrew Tess is an American artist and photographer. He graduated from The New School with a degree in Culture & Media. Tess takes influence from Expressionism, films such as Georges Méliès' A Trip to the Moon (1902) and Wes Craven's Scream (1996) and New York City street culture. His work explores birth, death, voyeurism, sex, performance and psychology as saturated colors, paint and flowers.
His first exhibition at SUS Gallery, "Judge Me: We Are All Expressionism" follows an array of Andrew’s collaborations with Lower East Side galleries, studios and nightclubs. His first solo show “World Peace” was held at Leftfield from March to May 2014. Andrew recently curated and photographed a performance art experiment titled “#BreedCompassion” at the Bikram Yoga LES studio to raise money for the Lower East Side Girls Club.
His short film, "I AM MY ART", was featured in the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
Andrew currently resides in New York.
