Ready to Hang
This piece happened quite by accident. I mean, the story...kind of organic. I have been recently captivated by the photography of Asian artist Chenman. I wanted to pay tribute to the world of fashion photography. Its depiction of beauty often tells a story through editorial. Which came first? Does it matter? I painted Click to show the relationship of camera and model and the person behind the lens. But, when I glossed it up, it cracked to bits and I could see another painting of mine behind this one. I began to scratch at it and this is the result. But, like in all art, does it really matter what's behind this creation? Can " a cigar be just a cigar?"
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.
