Biography

Painter, musician, sculptor, graphic designer, and regular contributor to The New York Times, Andrew Kuo is a fixture in New York’s creative milieu. He is known artistically for chart paintings that quantify the inner workings of his psyche. The diptych The More You know About Me The More You'll Think Twice Before Calling/I'd Be More Tolerable If I Smoked Weed Because... (2011), for instance, documents Kuo’s personal life and emotional experience through images and text. “I paint the forms for the charts on the surface of the piece and they keep changing as I work on them,” he says. “One color could expand and another could be erased and brought back through the process.” Stylistically, Kuo references various modern and contemporary artists, including Josef Albers and Sophie Calle, and gleans pop culture references from music and social media.
