One the borough’s most talented muralists opened a pop up, solo show in the borough for the first time. Kingsbridge’s own Andre Trenier debuted and showed off some of his largest and most elaborate pieces to a crowd of art aficionados at the Bronx Terminal Market on Thursday, June 25.
Fittingly enough, the pop up is also just blocks down from much of Trenier’s well known, New York Yankees murals that are etched onto many a store’s roll-down security gate outside of the famous Yankee Stadium.
It was after college that he formed his relationship with the Yankees and began leaving his legacy on River Avenue.
“I grew up loving the Yankees. Thurman Munson was always my favorite, getting the opportunity to paint his mural and so many others really was an outstanding experience,” Andre said.
Some of the other Yankees-related murals he’s painted have been of Roberto Clemente, Reggie Jackson and recently Aaron Judge.
Although, this exhibit focuses on much more than some iconic baseball faces.
Titled ‘From The Bronx-With Love,’ it emphasizes some of the most personal and authentic artwork that captures the nature of the borough’s creativity through music and culture.
With a mix of vibrant colors and unique fonts, Trenier’s somewhat ‘cosmic’ style is displayed at its best in a large scale portrait that expounds “don’t let life get in the way of your art,” in addition to many other works that have been kept under wraps in his workspace at the Andrew Freeman Home on East 167th Street.
Some work that Trenier had completed for the Bronx Zoo was put on display as well.
Trenier’s exhibit will be open at the Bronx Terminal Market with his artwork changing roughly about every two weeks until Saturday, September 14.
