Andro Kööp

1967 Tallinn

Andro Kööp has been known as a radical vanguard artist, designer as well as an interior designer, which, at the same time, adds social, playful and decorative aspects to his choice of themes. The works of the artist are always more or less spatial, to which he adds plant motifs and precious stones like spectres. The romantic and calm world created in such a way is supplemented by tones full of electricity and a semi-translucent raster background, which fits into a modern, as well as classical, interior and which has almost become a trade mark of the artist.
