Andres Serrano is an American photographer who is notorious for his controversial images of subjects such as corpses in morgues, Ku Klux Klansmen, and the homeless. Perhaps best known for his work Piss Christ, which depicts a crucifix submerged in a glass jar of the artist's urine, the masterful quality of Serrano's color saturated prints is unparalleled, transcending the label of "shock art" to challenge outdated notions of beauty and taboo. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants from organizations such as the New York State Council on the Arts, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Cintas Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Serrano was an artist-in-residence at P.S.1's National and International Studio Program at Long Island City, NY in 1985.Read Less
