Andrew Levitas is an artist in the truest sense of the word who The New York Times declared “has the Midas touch” when describing his work across multiple creative platforms.

Levitas’ Metalwork Photographic Installations®, each comprised of multi-paneled interlocking metal sheets, have a collective impact which transcends their individual materiality and represent a breakthrough in connecting photography, sculpture, and contemporary art. The works’ strength is derived from their dual draw as photographs and sculptures, existing in an alternate dimension that intrigues and engages the eye. Levitas’s creation and subsequent disfiguration of his own artwork adds a performative twist to his artwork that situates it at the vanguard of contemporary art.


Levitas’ “Organic Abstractions” (paintings built from home made pigments, canvas, and organic materials – in some cases entire trees) have also received critical acclaim. In December of 2008, Levitas was honored as one of only a handful of American painters ever accepted to the prestigious Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in its one hundred and fifty year existence. This exhibition was held at the Louvre.


Recent highlights include solo exhibitions: METALWORK PHOTOGRAPHY®: A SURVEY/ WORKS BY ANDREW LEVITAS which was the first ever single artist exhibition in PHILLIP’S Berkeley Square location, Metalwork Photography®: Sculptures at Phillips de Pury & Co. in Manhattan, as well as an early retrospective Andrew Levitas: A Brief Survey 2002-2012 at New York University.

Recent acquisitions include The National Museum Wales as well as 10 Downing Street.

Levitas’ feature film directorial debut LULLABY, was from his own screenplay and stars Academy Award Nominees Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, Terrence Howard, and Anne Archer, Academy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson, as well as Garrett Hedlund, and Jessica Brown-Findlay. The film, an exploration of patients rights in the United States, was described by Pete Hammond (Deadline) as a "strong human drama" with "Jenkins a true actor's actor, delivering a very Oscar-worthy supporting turn."

Levitas has also produced: The Art of Getting By starring Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore, Affluenza starring Nicola Peltz, and At Any Price starring Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid.

A professor at New York University, Levitas maintains studios in New York, Los Angeles, & London and is Global Patron of The Wilderness Foundation.
