Student Artwork Update: Andrew Coppa

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

We are pleased to present sculptures by SVACE student Andrew Coppa! Andrew created this artwork in conjunction with numerous courses, including Figurative Sculpture with Dave Cortes and Digital Sculpture with Luis Rodrigo Navarro.


Artwork by Andrew Coppa

Andrew is a native New Yorker who studied photography at SVA from 1990-1994 as a transfer student. He writes:

“This was a blessing in disguise because it enabled [me] to venture out into multiple facets of art whilst [at SVA]. Since the usual college credits were taken care of at previous schools [I] was able to be like a kid in a candy store and take classes in painting, film, design, writing, computers, video, and advertising.”

Andrew is a professional photographer who works in advertising, editorial, and celebrity photography, and he co-owns Vis Vitae Studios in NYC. He “has never ceased to take continuing education classes over the last 23 years (mostly at SVA) in all mediums. All of these classes greatly influence all of [my] professional and personal works on a daily basis.”

Viewers may agree with Andrew that this show is about his “specific venture into clay and digital sculpture” and that “this experience was more about him pushing himself out of his comfort zone, learning something new, and by having it be more literal it was a clearer gauge to him as far as how he was progressing on his journey.”

Faculty Updates

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Ruth Marten, Barbara Segal, Ilene Strizver, and Steve Brodner.

From "Fountains & Alligators" by Ruth Marten

From “Fountains & Alligators” by Ruth Marten

Ruth Marten was featured in The New Yorker for her illustrated collection, Fountains & Alligators. For the series, Marten uses ink and watercolor to seamlessly transform Victorian prints into “crocodile cohabitation” and other surreal, waterlogged tableaux.


Barbara Segal, “Black Candy” (Image via the New York Post)

Barbara Segal carves Hermés Birkins from stone, as described in the New York Post. The Post writes, “Her ‘bags’ are true to size and bear immaculate detailing, including the status tote’s signature leather folds, tight stitching and even the lock.” See her work in person in a group show, Emerging to Established, on view at Krause Gallery in NYC from Sept. 7 through Oct. 5.

From Ilene Strizver's "TypeTalk"

From Ilene Strizver’s “TypeTalk”

Ilene Strizver updated TypeTalk, her excellent typography blog at CreativePro. In “How to Work with a Lettering Artist,” Strizver consults leading lettering artists. Each artist describes a creative process that includes research, sketches, and digital output. The artists also share ideas about what they need from art directors: “Tips for a good job with me.”

Steve Brodner for the L.A. Times

Steve Brodner for the L.A. Times

Steve Brodner illustrated The Home Stretch, an Op-Ed parody for the L.A. Times of the last days of campaign 2016. Despite this election’s ceaseless absurdity, Brodner’s chronicles always find room for more.
