Born and raised in the Bronx, André Trenier has spent the better part of the last two decades establishing himself as one of the premier artists to emerge from the birthplace of hip hop.
A graduate of the famed LaGuardia School for the Performing Arts and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, André first made his name as one of the most acclaimed sneaker customizers in the world, with works appearing on ESPN, in Rolling Stone, XXL, and Complex, for celebrity clients ranging from Magic Johnson to Elton John.
To hone his skills, André began competing in local live art competitions, where he quickly emerged as the star attraction. He was named captain of the Art Battle International team that competed across Europe, with contests in Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Barcelona and Valencia, where he won a special award for most individual and collaborative wins.
André has also emerged as one of New York’s premier muralists, with over two dozen murals in the Bronx and Washington Heights alone. Notable works include a portrait of Heavy D and the Boyz in Mt. Vernon for the Knicks and Chase bank; a six-story basketball mural on the lower east side commissioned by The Kevin Durant Foundation and Roc Nation; and a 150-foot wall on 167 Street and Gerard Avenue, commissioned by the Bronx Museum (documented by www.Complex.com in a blog entitled “The Coolest Street Art in New York Right Now”).
To baseball fans, André may be best known for his iconic murals on the storefront gates surrounding Yankee Stadium, frequently featured on the YES Network, depicting sports and entertainment greats including Muhammad Ali, Joe DiMaggio, Reggie Jackson, DJ Kool Herc, Derek Jeter and many others. He was also selected to design a series of signature hats with Yankee great Gary Sanchez as part of a national campaign with the team and Pepsi.
André is currently an Artist in Residence at the Andrew Freedman Home in the Bronx, participating in community service programming for local residents. He is in the process of designing a signature collection of Champion eyewear for L’amy and will appear as part of a group show in Chicago featuring graffiti legends from New York and Chicago (opening 7/19).
