Bio

Andrea LaHue aka Random Act

Artist Statement/Statement Describing Work

I find divinity in nature with no dogma attached.  I like to layer thoughts, people, scenes, history, sometimes in the form of maps, sometimes, layers of “not so pretty”... I like my paintings to become themselves, to embrace everything, ultimately reaching for redemption.  To redeem the ordinary, allowing it’s divine.  That’s what I like to be immersed in.

Bio:

Andrea LaHue, aka Random Act, is widely recognized for her monumental botanical paintings across America.  As an Army brat, her travels exposed her to art throughout Europe and the Americas and inspired her to uplift and instigate with her practice. LaHue’s paintings were displayed at the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) and she has shown nationally, including Los Angeles and New York and internationally, including Paris.  LaHue has painted murals in over 50 U.S. Cities as well as city sanctioned electrical boxes in downtown Los Angeles.  Newspapers, including The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, NBC News and The Associated Press, as well as several notable blogs, have featured her artwork and millions have seen her contributions to projects for Martha Stewart Living and How I Met Your Mother.

LaHue’s socially conscious art ranges from giant murals to delicate historical portraits and she has enjoyed collaborating with great artists such as Cyrcle.  LaHue has spoken on panels and round tables for esteemed entities such as the LA Times and Marymount University.  She has participated in many fundraising projects, most recently, as one of the February 2015 artists for AngelenoArtistry.com.

Andrea LaHue’s Random Act projects are non-profit and community oriented.  In 2014 LaHue via her Random Act Projects partnered with GOOGLE in March 2015 for their Cultural Institute Street Art Platform, quickly followed by #earthdaystreet2015.

LaHue is erasing the boundaries between street art, public art and fine art.
