Andre Veloux

Biography

Andre-Studio-Shot.jpg

Andre Veloux artworks explore gender, women’s rights and consent issues using the medium of Lego bricks.

 

Andre’s works include 2 dimensional striated and soft-palette imagery with subtle messaging, alongside 3 dimensional portrait works and series such as “Freedom Without Judgment''. The latter references pop art, depicting bold images built from pixels and leverages the 3 dimensional opportunity coming from his medium. These bold images comment on beauty, fashion choices, and societal pressures inflicted on young women. Another theme which Andre calls “Anti-portraits” depicts a series of female figures showing their backs, emphasizing their vulnerability to ‘the male gaze’.

Andre values live settings for audiences to interact intimately with each other and his artwork. His “Pause” collaboration with Princeton University took place in February 2019 and interacting with the public and in particular young adults remain a target audience for Andre going forward.
