André Leon Gray

A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, André Leon Gray is a self-trained artist who works in a variety of media to examine the impact of history and memory on present day power structures and social hierarchies.

He transforms mundane objects into powerful social commentary with the intent of creating dialogue among his audience.
