Biography

B. 1987 Long Island, NY
Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY

Andrew Brischler's paintings and drawings explore his queer identity through his relationship to American popular culture. Words, phrases, and graphic motifs are culled from a wide array of sources from Brischler's personal history and are rendered in paint, marker, and colored pencil. 

Of his most recent work, Brischler says, "When the pandemic was first sweeping through New York City, the stillness we were all forced to endure became unbearable. Because mass transit felt so unsafe, I rented a car so I could work in my studio as much as possible. I began mining source material I'd been ignoring for years. I sifted through screenshots on my phone--some dating back 10 years--of a whole litany of things. I found images of old book covers, vintage gay porn magazines, posters for bad horror films, wallpaper from my childhood home, and song lyrics about men I lusted after when I first moved to New York. The nostalgia for an old life was so overwhelming that I just began making work about it all.  What resulted is a kind of stream of consciousness splashed across my studio walls--a continually expanding record of my anxieties, fears, obsessions, and joys."
