This event has ended.

Andre Veloux’s unique and captivating work created with Lego bricks is inspired by social change. Following on from a recent successful two artist show at Krause Gallery, he has created a new work related to his Appearance theme. Five of these works, which depict aspects of women’s styles of dress and appearance were included in the recent show. Anti-Portrait I, is now included in the summer Emerging to Established show at Krause Gallery in New York City. Anti Portrait I will be shown alongside works by artists including Hanksy, Ben Frost, Plastic Jesus, Nick Smith and others.

Anti-Portrait I shows a woman facing away from the viewer wearing only plain white underwear, how we respond to this image raises questions about how we look at and judge women today.

Andre Veloux’s vibrant pop art combines two and three-dimensional elements that capture the imagination. Driven by social significance, much of his work is part of his multi-faceted gender equality project, Building Blocks of Change. Tackling gender equality from several angles, his most familiar works have been portraits of female icons. Ranging from his own teenage daughter to Jane Fonda, Malala and Lady Gaga, the subjects are strong, self-motivated women. While some of these women have reached iconic status for their work and influence, all are agents of change in society. Alongside this are his composite portrait images, mixing up hair, eyes and eyebrows, lips and face shape into one image, which pass comment on the constant demands on women to continually rebuild and renew how they present themselves.

His Appearance works appeal to men and women equally, but often for different reasons. The thoughts and feelings that are raised by the works when they are seen or touched is undoubtedly revealing of the way modern women are treated for what they choose to wear.

All of Veloux’s works are made from Lego bricks. With a background in maths, computing and web design, Veloux decided four years ago to search for a medium that would best make use of his digital skills, and enable him to produce a physical, tactile artwork with a message. Veloux’s work has been shown at many venues including, Krause Gallery, Parlor Gallery, Site:Brooklyn and the Monmouth Museum. A native of Great Britain, he currently resides in Princeton, NJ with his wife and daughter.
