Queen Andrea, otherwise known as Andrea Von Bujdoss.
A native New Yorker, Andrea was raised in the vibrant Soho neighbourhood of Manhattan, New York City. The daughter of two artists, Andrea's passion for urban art and graphic design surfaced at an early age.
In the early 1990s, she began to learn graffiti history and developed important friendships and mentoring relationships with some of the most internationally notable New York City old school graffiti artists. As a young adult, Andrea attended the prestigious Parsons School of Design where she earned a BFA in Graphic Design. She then began a successful Graphic Design career, working for brands and companies who appreciate both the urban creative flavour of her work and her passionate knowledge of typography, branding and visual communication.
These days, she is one of the most traditionally skilled female graffiti artists in the country and is enthusiastically building her design and illustration portfolios. She has been featured in art shows, toy shows, magazines, books and fashion lines. As a versatile designer, her expertise spans many disciplines and styles including Editorial, advertising, logo, illustration and website design. She has created customized art for high-end exhibitions, events and brands including Hasbro, Kidrobot, Toy Tokyo, Osiris Shoes, Sprite, Scion and The Rocksteady Crew, and Cleveland Public Art. She has also individually produced and curated urban art exhibitions and events.
