Btoy - Biography

Andrea Michaelsson aka Btoy was born in 1977 in Barcelona. She began her artistic career during her education at the Institute of Photographic Studies of Barcelona. Active since 2001 in the street art scene, in 2008 she has been invited by Banksy in the Cans Festival in London, along with fifty of the best stencil artists in the world. After the great success in 2011 of the first Italian exhibition at Traffic Gallery, Btoy back to Bergamo in 2013, boasting recent and important participations in museum exhibitions like the show White Wall at the Beirut Art Center (2012), the publication of first monographic catalog raisonné Btoy - the Passionaria du street art by Thierry Froger (2012), the Portrait of Sakineh Ashtiani - Intervention against Death Penalty in collaboration with  Amnesty International (Barcelona, 2012), the invitation from the Bundeskunsthalle of Bonn for the big show Being Cleopatra - the eternal diva for which the Spanish artist also created the portrait-poster of the event (2013). During 2014 we remember the partecipations to the big shows like La dimensión poco conocida : Pioneras del cine at Museu del Cinema de Girona (Spain, 2014), La Tour Paris 13 (Paris), Djerbahood (Tunisia)...
