LARRY LEWIS

American Painter and Sculptor

 

Lewis is a master painter and sculptor that has been developing his art for over 45 years from an art director background to an accomplished and renowned artist. Born in California, he was raised in a very strict family. He felt limited and frustrated by the perception of the world he was offered and the arts enabled him to explore the no-limits he had an infinite thirst for. That has been his ultimate motivation all along and still is today.

He has traveled the world, as a nomad, with the instability that is typical of an artist. Inspired by the countries he has lived in: USA, Costa Rica, Mexico, Australia, he has cultivated a culture and knowledge that is very wide and represented in the philosophy that inspires him to create. Each of his work has layers of symbolism and philosophy. His work has much more than aesthetic value; he has the intuition of the artist’s eye and mind.

Lewis always questions. It is a never-ending cycle, where he has never found complete satisfaction. He is in eternal search of truth as a visionary philosopher of the present and how he envisions the future. He has continuously renewed himself in the search of new creative forms and approaches. The social and human condition are always at the heart of his inspiration; a subject that is in constant change and evolution. That is why he cannot find the answers or the satisfaction, as it will always continue to transform and evolve. He is on a permanent and insatiable quest, and the next collection he creates is always a reflection of his socialistic journey.

Lewis has attained levels of recognition and continues to renew his creation to the next level. He has been and continues to be exhibited all over the world: USA, Canada, Mexico, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Russia, UK, … His artworks can be found in prominent museums such as the De Young Museum, in San Francisco, Hot Springs Museum of Contemporary, The Coral Springs Museum of Art, The Evansville Museum of Art, as well as many important personal and corporate collections throughout the world.
