Paradiso. Swahili for paradise. A life "bila ubaguzi" or without prejudice. Peace and harmony with nature-paradise.
I hope this peace brings bliss and serenity to your home.

Why do I make art?
To slow down my brain, to revel in a snapshot of our rollercoaster lives.
Everything assaults us visually and aurally, at all times. When I make art, it's a mindful time, no past, no future, just in the moment, its curative.
Also, I love to make people feel happy, exited, thrilled. So, if a snapshot of my crazy thought process, on canvas, makes you smile,I did my job!
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.
