Viva LA Co-Founder Andre Miripolsky Featured in Pasadena Magazine
American art has been enriched by artists from around the world who immigrated to the United States, helping to shape the cultural scene with their unique contributions. Among these influential artists is Andre Miripolsky, who is recognized worldwide for his vivid works that pay tribute to Los Angeles. Born in Paris, Miripolsky spent the first 18 years of his life abroad due to his father’s job as a cultural advisor for the American Foreign Service. He credits his nomadic childhood with setting the stage for his career as an artist. “My father was also an artist and always had a studio, so wherever we lived I could go work in there,” Miripolsky says. “It was a way to entertain myself and create something that people would positively respond to. The one consistency in my life that saved me was art. It’s been saving me my entire life.”
