Ready to Hang

The classic American ideal of beauty has been given an upgrade. Beauty 2.0.
She is younger, thinner, more flawless, artificially sweetened and definitely not grass-fed (carbs, ugh.)
This social commentary combines my love for painting beauty and the impossible "enhancements" I have created through this piece. The only thing real is the resined, tearful expression in the model's eyes.
Gallery wrapped canvas = art wraps around sides. No need to frame.

My name is Markus Lewis, and I am a Vango Artist. I paint, A lot. My obsession centers around the human form. Age and gender don't make a difference- as long a the characters created form a story, the viewer is intrigued, the imagination is ignited and the cocktails pour;-then my job is done. I love to create pieces that would hang in the swankiest of soirees, in the hippest spaces, art that entertains and adds a sense of query to the room. Solve a puzzle, finish my story, and buy my art. Schooled by everyone from internationally known Art Historians to World Class painters, in nearly every medium; sculpture, collage, color, oils, acrylic watercolor, ebony lead, all to percolate into the pieces I offer today.
