Professor Deszo came to prominence in the U.S. when she was commissioned by the New York Subway System to create a series of artworks for public display. Eventually, the B.F.A. and M.F.A. holder from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art & Design in Budapest, Hungary completed three pieces for the New York Subway System. Her work for the City of New York was so impressive that Deszo won the Best American Public Art Prize in 2007 for her “Community Garden” piece at Lehman College Subway Station.

The impressive work of Andrea Deszo has seen her commissioned to create posters for the New York Botanical Garden and murals for the transit system in her home city of Budapest. That is not to say the work of Andrea Deszo has been limited to those pieces commissioned at large scale for public spaces. Among the publications, Andrea Deszo has been published in are the “Wall Street Journal” and “The New York Times.” The work of the artist has also been exhibited throughout the world in respected galleries across North America, Japan, France, and South Korea.
