Andrew Poneros was born and raised in Queens, New York. In 2002, he received a BA in Design from Pratt Institute. Heavily influenced by an upbringing immersed in New York City graffiti culture, his street art can be seen all around the city under the moniker PORK. Largely inspired by the iconography of his Greek heritage, much of his work contains elements of his own playfully apocalyptic ethos. Poneros' work has been exhibited in galleries around the world including New York City, South Hampton, Miami, Aspen, Switzerland, Athens, Mexico City, and more.
His work is informed by his nautical lifestyle, and the inherent romanticism of his time spent sailing and exploring the waters of New York. Poneros currently works out of his studio based in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
