Featured Artist
International ArtExpo is proud to present the video “Solipsist” by Andrew Thomas Huang, from the “Autour de Minuit” selection.

Andrew Thomas Huang is a filmmaker and artist living in Los Angeles. His film career is preceded with a love of drawing and painting, paralleled with experimentation in animation, fashion and puppetry. These interests culminated in his short film “Solipsist“, which was honored at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes Lions and won Best Experimental Short Film at the Slamdance Film Festival. The film caught the attention of Icelandic polymath Bjork, leading Andrew to direct her music video for “Mutual Core”, premiering at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Andrew’s work has also been showcased at the Hammer Museum, MOCA Taipei, ZKM Media Museum, ASVOFF at the Centre Pompidou, as well as various publications including Interview Magazine, DAZED&CONFUSED, Paper Magazine, The Atlantic, Motionographer, SIGGRAPH’s electronic Theater, and Creativity Magazine’s “Directors to Watch.”
