Ready to Hang
Wallflower tells the story of a deco beauty. In an age where glamour abounded, a gal had to play her cards right. Wallflower is coy. She's not opposed to waiting for Mr. Right. She slowly sips, carefully surveying the ballroom.
She's nobody's fool.
Mixed media, gallery wrapped so there is no need to frame Wallflower.
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.
