AMBIDEXTROUS is made up of husband and wife artists Andrae Green and Priya Nadkarni Green. Together they draw from their individual practices as painters to create public art, murals and special projects. Their aim is to inspire positivity, beauty and excitement through their collaborative work. Projects often interface directly with the public and through participation from student assistants. Their studios can be found in their Springfield, Massachusetts home.
Andrae Green hails from Kingston, Jamaica. In 2004, he received a BFA from Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica. He later received his MFA in 2008 from the New York Academy of Art. Andrae has shown his paintings internationally and has represented Jamaica at the Beijing Biennial in 2013, 2015, and 2017. He also represented the U.S. at the Salon des Beaux Arts held at the Carrousel de Louvre in Paris in 2013. He continues to show his work extensively in the U.S. and internationally.
