Andre Bogart Szabo creates paintings and wall mounted sculptures that explore the transformative power of repetition. Embracing informal materials such as gravel, fireworks, and foraged materials, Szabo creates expansive abstract fields that are chaotic, expressive, and minimal all at once. He received his BA in Post-Production from Emerson College’s Visual Media Arts department in 2012. Szabo currently lives and works in New York. He was born in Washington, D.C. in 1990.
