Andrea Dezso

Andrea Dezsö is a visual artist who draws, paints and sculpts. Dezsö’s work explores women’s roles, family, authoritarianism, migration and belonging. Dezsö’s richly detailed artwork invokes nature and folk tales to tell stories, and is often masterfully hand-crafted. Dezsö’s permanent public art commissions are installed in three New York City subway stations, at the United States Embassy in Bucharest, Romania, and at CUNY BMCC’s World Trade Center location in Manhattan. Community Garden, Dezsö’s mosaic mural in the Bronx subway, was recognized as Best American Public Art in 2007 by Americans for the Arts. Dezsö was born in Transylvania, Romania, went to university in Budapest, Hungary, lives in America and exhibits in museums and galleries around the world.
