Andrew Benincasa makes paper-cut art, stop-motion animations, and stories. In his early-20’s, Andrew pursued literature, languages, and education, but then made an abrupt shift to creating and performing shadow puppet shows. He performed for small audiences, week after week, year after year, developing his aesthetic and relationship with the audience. During this time, he taught himself paper-cut art, and, eventually animation.
Andrew now operates from his studio in Brooklyn, NY as a freelance artist, making artwork, lightboxes, and animations for clients, as well as working on his own projects. He is currently at work on an animated adaptation of the Book of Job.
