Illustrator based in London
A member of the Association of Illustrators (AOI), Andrei is a London-based artist and a graduate of the George Enescu National University of Arts and the Octav Bancila National College of Arts, both in Iasi, Romania.
Andrei’s passion for illustration began at a young age. His mother, the first to discover his raw talent, signed him up for his first drawing lessons at the age of 5. Since then, Andrei practices various forms of visual media, including sculpture,painting,illustration, portraiture, and comics, both as a form of self-expression and as a means of defiance toward the stark realities of the post communist Romania, the trials of migration, and the political corruption and repression he still witnesses in his home country and in many others around the world.
Blending his ongoing passion for cooking and art, Andrei launched [You Are What You Eat / FuseYou] in 2019, a bespoke, illustrated pop-art concept that turns people into their favorite food or dish, a riff off the popular phrase, which has come to signify alignment to healthy eating, but could also shed light on our own inner personalities and hidden habits.
