ANDRÉ THE ILLUSTRATOR

André works in two distinct different styles. One style is whimsical, personal and painterly based on humorous ideas. The second style is graphic, simple and flat. André's portraits focuses on a representational versus a interpretational execution, something which could withstand time and still may look contemporary in the years to come.
