BIO

Andrew Da Silva is a visual artist from Montreal, inspired by 90’s cartoons, comics and graffiti. With a penchant for clean bold lines, and vibrant colour palettes, Andrew paints monsters, and characters with a distinctive edge. His paintings are often humorous, satirical, cute and sometimes creepy.
” I grew up on a healthy dose of Hip Hop, video games, comic books and animation. Mix in a little dash of my life experiences and this is where my style manifests from. The cynical, deceptive nature of my characters who, at first glance appear to be innocent, but further reveal critiques on humanity, relationships, emotions, heartbreak and loss…”
