Andrew Benincasa makes paper-cut art, stopmotion animations and stories. Andrew had pursued literature, languages and education early on, but in his mid-twenties, made a shift to creating and performing shadow puppet shows. He performed for small audiences, week after week, year after year, developing his aesthetic. During this time, he taught himself paper-cut art, composition 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. To see more of his work, and/or to contact him, go to: www.andrewbenincasa.com.
