Andy Reed (Infinite Geometry) is an artist whose visual alchemy captures a visionary journey into inter-dimensional landscapes -- with prismatic colors, geometric shapes, and an ancient glyphic light-language amongst organic and terrestrial conceptions.Originally from northern New Jersey (but now living in Asheville, NC), his work represents the energy of another realm, making you feel as though you are peering into another galaxy and understanding that there is a possibility for life outside that of which we are familiar.

Some of them include Amon Tobin, Tipper, Orbital, Nas, Santigold, Primus, STS9, Heyoka, Eoto, Bonobo, SBTRKT, Random Rab, Mark Farina, The Human Experience, Bela Fleck, Particle, Lotus, The Glitch Mob, Androcell, Entheogenic, Gaudi, Pretty Lights, Gift Of Gab, Eskmo, Kaminanda, The New Deal, Beats Antique, Ott, Thievery Corporation, Two Fresh, Big Gigantic, Shpongle, Bluetech, Invisible Allies, Mimosa, Conspirator, Ana Sia, Eliot Lipp, Nasty Nasty, Bird Of Prey, Anahata Sound, Mochipet, Vibesquad, Kilowatts, Flying Lotus, Emancipator, Pnuma Trio, Skytree, Welder, & Phutureprimitive, as well as a vast number of other notable talent. Andy is also the continual live painter for Papadosio, The Malah, & Zoogma, often touring with these bands on the road, painting at multiple shows and festivals throughout the year.
