About Trevor Andrew aka GUCCIGHOST
Born in Nova Scotia, based in Brooklyn (2003-2018), and currently living in Los Angeles, GUCCIGHOST is a multi-disciplinary artist that is internationally known for his raw DIY aesthetic and pop art sensibility. His visual language is rooted in punk and skate culture of the 1990's that has adapted for our current state of media saturation. Andrew's work critiques and explores contemporary socio-economic structures, specifically analyzing popular consumerism. He brings to the foreground questions regarding 'real' vs. its perception: as luxury. Back in 2016, Andrew made his proverbial mark when he was enlisted - after brazenly declaring, sue me or hire me -- to concoct his very own capsule collection with GUCCI based on his earlier outlaw street perversions of the iconic brand. To this day, GUCCI continues drawing from Andrew's re-imaginings. Other examples of creative work have been executed in a variety of media disciplines and platforms from producing album art for musicians to focusing on his own brand, Real Buy, which aims to translate the spontaneity and authenticity that happens in his studio. Trevor's fine art has been exhibited at galleries around the world including Deitch Projects - New York, The Museum of Modern Art - Shanghai, Milk Gallery - New York, Maccarone Gallery - Los Angeles and Powerlong Museum in Shanghai.
