She has been featured in publications such as The Guardian, The New York Times, Huffington Post and Time-Out; as well as being interviewed on BBC World News and London Live TV, alongside her installations, and was featured on Channel 4 documentary ‘Flawless’.
Her Bipolar Picasso series of art installations, featuring intimate paintings and audio recordings of people who have experience with mental health issues and first prize winning entry at the ING Discerning Eye 2020 exhibition received critical acclaim.
During the 2021 Covid-19 lockdown, Tyrimos joined the #LightItBlue project, an initiative part of the wider #MakeItBlue campaign in the UK, to encourage people to share their own messages of gratitude and solidarity to the NHS. Created during London’s first lockdown in 2020, Andrea Tyrimos’s painting ‘Sophie’, wanted to elevate key workers to the status they deserve by shining a light on the crucial work they do.

Andrea is such a credit with regards to what she's trying to do; reach out to people, and tell these stories through art. The eyes don't lie, the eyes tell a big, deep story and it's a pleasure to be able to see that" - Leon McKenzie
