Andy Golub is a world renowned artist specializing in public art and body art. His public performances have changed nudity laws in New York City and opened the doors for free expression for many other artists. Founder of the international non-profit Human Connection Arts, Golub's work has been featured in many events in NYC, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin and San Francisco.
Golub's body art is both interactive and spontaneous. He does not objectify his models, but relies on a spiritual connection between artist and model for inspiration, revealing an inner truth through his art. Golub has painted models of all shapes and sizes, people with disabilities, cancer patients, the elderly and people of all genders.
A strong advocate for public art, Golub has painted murals throughout NYC and in Wynwood, Miami. His painted automobiles have been featured in many NYC parades.
Golub created a new art form that he calls “human canvas” paintings. Large groups of models lay flat, forming a human canvas, spontaneously painted and photographed from above. The largest human canvas painting to date is 17 models.
"I make up the art as I go, because the present is as important as any other moment."
"Art could be on anything including the human body. And it should be on display for the world to see."
Golub has been featured in a wide array of press including Newsweek, New York Magazine, Art Info, National Geographic, CBS Sunday Morning, Playboy, Late Show with David Letterman, Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, Salon.com, Daily News, Daily Mail, Gothamist, Village Voice and many more.
Golub believes deeply in the importance of art having a relevant role in our society and is always ready to do a scheduled or impromptu interview.
