Ready to Hang
I chose the title for this piece after a trip to Las Vegas. I wanted to catch the feeling of 1950's Vegas, and the kings of the strip.
I created this piece after I realized my love for old photos depicting entertainers could be mixed with expressive painting. Then, alot of travel to the West proved inspiring for me..
So i started gathering photos, manipulating them, adhering them to gallery wrapped canvas and painting over, on, and around them, till my story was told!
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.
