Description

Trevor Andrew is a professional snowboarder-turned-Gucci collaborator. Obsessed with Gucci while he was an Olympian, Andrew began spray painting the Gucci logo anywhere he could, and never turned back. While the average street artist does not collaborate with luxury brands like Gucci, Andrew’s personal vision of a Gucci-clad world has since turned into a partnership with the Italian couture house. Although he has gained notoriety for his street work as “Gucci Ghost,” Andrew’s work spans street art, video, and music, pulling references from pop culture and internet lingo alike. In Popeye Quit Smoking, Andrew has adorned a found road sign with the familiar character of Popeye who is jauntily wearing a Gucci hat.

About Trevor "Trouble" Andrew

View Profile »

Trevor “Trouble” Andrew (b. 1979; Nova Scotia, Canada) aka Gucci Ghost, is a multi-disciplinary artist, based in Los Angeles, CA. He is internationally known for his raw street aesthetic and pop art sensibility. Trevor’s recent work explores our relationship with consumer culture, bending the perception of what is “real” and what is luxury.

In 2013, Trevor began tagging the streets of Brooklyn, New York with a personalized vision of the iconic Gucci logo. He transformed everything around him to Gucci by repurposing discarded objects and clothing, extracting the power of the brand identity. This work quickly garnered a substantial online following, and led to an invitation from famed Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele in 2016 to partner on designs for the iconic Milan based fashion house. As a result of Trevor’s collaborative work, the collection has become a major global success story that has helped bolster the brand. Trevor’s fine art has been exhibited around the world in Tokyo, Toronto and Los Angeles. His last show at the Milk Gallery in New York City attracted over 10,000 visitors during the month-long exhibition.
