Avery Singer (born 1987, New York, NY) combines abstraction and figuration, with technology and new methods of painting. Her paintings often depict Neo-cubist style figures with architectural backdrops. Singer creates her images using the software Google SketchUp and then projects them onto large canvases, before airbrushing with black and white acrylic paint.

In 2017, she was awarded the Jean-Francois Prat Prize and in 2015, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Biennial Award.
