is an italian artist who lives and works in brooklyn, ny. in 2013 he moved to providence, where he graduated from the rhode island school of design #risd
in 2017 with a major in painting.
his paintings consist of re-purposed photographs of tommaso g., who is andrea’s ubiquitous subject and personal icon. as such, his works embrace a biographical fragment of social media idolatry to open up the contradictory dialogue between virtual identity and sexuality, sameness and difference, fetishization and embodiment. his paintings are up until june 30th - come check him out! 💙 #nonfinito #fragmentedrealities @andrearugarli @risd1877 @risdmuseum
