Andrea Popyordanova is a freelance illustrator, based in Edinburgh and Sofia. She works easily accessible materials, felt tip pens, pencils, gouache,ink, but she also love to see how this impulsive work is shaped through printmaking. She is often inspired by her surroundings, people she notices, interesting conversations, magic realism and a lot of science and psychology.
Andrea graduated from an illustration course, but is interested in design and publications, as well as in organising events. She recently asked a few of her friends to do artwork on the theme of water, swimming, and buoys, which turned into a wonderful collection of risograph-printed images, exhibited in Oh Buoy. This exhibition combines her fascination with print, illustration and thinking about our environment.
