"Big And Bad" is inspired by the rebellious spirit of street artists. ‘Big and Bad Rebels and Renegades’ suggests the fighting spirit of certain artists, who undertake amazing risks to gain fame and make their unique marks on society. It’s also a celebration of rebels generally, the individuals who strive to accomplish unique, daring feats within non-status quo subcultures and paradigms. The artistic style of Big And Bad is an exploration of typography, signpainter lettering and illustration within a very bold composition." - Queen Andrea

Read on for more on Queen Andrea after the break.
Queen Andrea is one of the most skilled and notable female graffiti artists in the
country, possessing an explosively creative style inspired by the excitement of
the urban landscape. Her custom lettering portfolio has grown beyond graffiti
and is a comprehensive collection of letter studies, design and portraiture.
The excitement, color, diversity and crazy energy of city life, and especially
graffiti, is where Andrea finds her creative inspiration. Renegade cutting-edge
artforms, sub-cultures and lifestyles that have sprang forth from an
ever-changing urban metropolis give her the visual stimulus, the guts, and the
urge to create and innovate. Her artistic style is influenced by themes of fame,
the advertising age, the golden age of hip hop, funk and rap music, typography,
geometry, symbolism, signpainter lettering, superheroes, bling, diamonds and
bombastic bright color.
Andrea has been featured in major art shows, toy shows, magazines, books,
fashion lines and brand collaborations. She has curated and exhibited in
numerous exhibitions nationally and is currently preparing for a New York City
2012 solo show.
