this is wright

Andrew Jeffrey Wright

If Space 1026 (of which he is a founder) is to Philadelphia's art scene what hip-hop is to music, then consider Andrew Jeffrey Wright its Ice T: an O.G. Whether it be drawing, painting, animation or photography, Wright's art is sharp social commentary dressed in a humor suit. Working with Clare Rojas, he won top prize for animation at the New York Underground Film Festival and the New York Comedy Film Festival, and has exhibited at Los Angeles's New Image Art Gallery and Giant Robot in New York. His most recent show was "Art for Corporations," a solo exhibit at San Francisco's The Luggage Store.
