Andrea Tyrimos, born 1986, is a contemporary artist who lives and works in London.
She graduated in Fine Art from Central St Martins in 2009, and has exhibited extensively since then; including London solo shows, and exhibitions in the UK and Europe.
She has been featured in publications such as The Guardian, The New York Times, Huffington Post and Time-Out; as well as being interviewed on BBC Global News and London Live TV. Tyrimos was recently a finalist for the Global Art Awards, and has received the Signature Art People’s Choice Painting Award, and the Art & Escape Award.
Her Bipolar Picasso series of art installations, featuring intimate paintings and audio recordings of people who have experience with mental health issues, has received critical acclaim. She recently developed a new piece in collaboration with Centrepoint, the youth homelessness charity – in order to raise funds and awareness.
Tyrimos’ environmental public art has also been embraced, and has seen her transform a London telephone box into a permanent art installation, paint live at the Barbican Centre, and produce several permanent outdoor installations which have been commissioned by London councils.
