Andrew Lyko is a young emerging artist from Rialto, California. His colorful style denies the rigid structures of rules and defies traditional boundaries through layers of bold, expressionistic strokes and references to pop culture as it relates to modern art, collective youth culture, and memory.
Lyko’s artworks incorporate representations of his personal experiences and interactions with various objects and locations that have left strong impressions on his life. These narrative memories find visual form through acrylic, oil bars and spray paint. Lyko frequently explores themes of duality in the light and dark that exists in the universal human experience.
Lyko gained a following by creating custom artworks on denim jackets for his renowned celebrity clientele that includes Jaden Smith, Roy Woods, and Hit-Boy. Interest in Lyko’s “art-as-fashion” perspective has cultivated a strong base of collectors. Initial clients of his wearable art have become avid collectors of his paintings. Lyko continues to tap into the collective consiousness of young contemporary art collectors while making artwork that is visually striking and thought-provoking.
