Revered for his purist vision, Andre is renowned for crafting captivating and hypnotic dreamscapes through his mesmerizing sketches and watercolors. His artworks seamlessly blend with modernism, striking a balance between intensity and playfulness, boldness, and ethereality.

Subsequently, he became a regular subject of mention in the notorious Andy Warhol diaries.
