QUEEN ANDREA, An Artist With Graffiti Roots, Paints Entire Square in Brooklyn
QUEEN ANDREA continues to make the city pop with her vivid public art
Known in graffiti circles as QUEEN ANDREA, artist Andrea von Bujdoss continues to beautify to the city with her vibrant geometric patterns. Although she typically embellishes walls with her eye-popping color palettes, for her latest endeavor, Bujdoss painted a 3,475 asphalt mural — part of which evokes memories of arcade classic Q*bert — at Ascenzi Square (North Fourth Street and Metropolitan Avenue) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Commissioned by the New York City Department of Transportation as part of its many ongoing beautification projects, QUEEN ANDREA tells Mass Appeal that she’s still adding “important details” to the piece, but expects it to be finished by Monday. She even shared a sketch showing the work still ahead of her.
“I’ve been in beastmode painting this beauty for the City of New York #nevernotworking,” she wrote via text.
Last year, Bujdoss and a handful of artists were hired by the DOT to liven up the 191st Street tunnel, transforming an otherwise drab conduit into a vidid work of art.
