Bio

ANDREA BOGDAN generously uses color and motion in her paintings to express the unique life spark inside every person, and the weird, wonderful and conflicted nature of the human condition. All of her works are improvised from beginning to end, painted primarily by “hand” (she prefers using acrylics and painting with the side of her palm), and no two pieces are alike. She derives inspiration from the vast array of people she’s met from all walks of life, having worked a variety of jobs in places such as Detroit, The Bronx, Manhattan, Dallas, Prague, Vienna, and Los Angeles.

Andrea’s collectors are from around the globe and her art resides in places such as Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Honduras, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, and across the United States. She is an advocate for L.A. art galleries.

Her work is influenced by artists such as: Marc Chagall, Ralph Steadman, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Michel Basquiat, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Jesse Reno. Andrea describes her style as FREESTYLE which is based on the idea of not only painting the uniqueness of the human spirit and its interaction with the world, but also painting without a preconceived plan.

You can visit Andrea in her working studio in downtown Los Angeles’ historic Gallery Row. Her studio is on the mezzanine level of The Last Bookstore on the corner of 5th and Spring Street.

Andrea’s paintings have been featured in the following shows:
