"I love working in old school New York signpainter lettering style. This poster take things a step further by focusing on vandalism, in a classic signpainter style and comes with matching stickers! What’s a vandal without a surface to mark? Both the print and sticker are super crisp and the colors are bold and vibrant. We all know that graffiti is daring and dangerous and I somehow wanted to capture this in a typography work. “The Vandal, Too Hot to Handle” is a lyric from ‘Protect Ya Neck’ by the Wu-tang Clan. My signpainter style lettering has a New York City flavor and the usage of a bold, hot red color just pops and is really loud. I wanted to create a piece that would shout! While I’m not a dedicated bomber these days, unlike some of my friends, I’m a notable piecer with great handstyles. This poster is dedicated to all the hardcore vandals in my life. It’s meant to celebrate their hardcore struggles and triumphs as mysterious, rebellious vandals who are truly “too hot to handle”. Their marks own the streets." - Queen Andrea

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.
