About The Artwork

My love of African masks, Fashion, Color and Graphic design inspired this work. The combination of African tribal sculptures and masks, bold blocks of color, strong graphic layout and typography that has statements and asks questions makes this contemporary work undeniably interesting. Viewers will first be attracted to the colors, then at closer inspection discover a wild fashionable work of art. Traditional African arts are a constant inspiration to me. I found a vintage book on African Art and sculpture that I’d never seen before. I was in the process of starting my 2023 works by collecting bold typography text and pages of full colored text from magazines. I copied the pages of the African imagery that I wanted to use, combined the images with the colorful magazine graphics and made dozens of individual collage works. The paper collage works were copied and assembled as large compositions for my new works. All of the right materials came together at the right time for my these works.

SAMUEL FLEMING LEWIS ARTIST STATEMENT I am an American artist best known for my abstract mixed media works on paper, collage works on canvas, and blind contour portrait drawings. The foundation of my work is collage. Incorporating my drawing or drafting methods with recycled printed materials, graphic design, and African art, I create collages. My collage pieces unite geometric shapes, abstracted forms, repetition, color, and patterns. I'm currently producing archival-quality digital monoprints by reinventing my collage, painting, and drawing works with new colors and compositions. My abstract representations of what I see or feel in my mind's eye are my blind contour portraits. I have complete freedom to create abstract portraits thanks to the drawing technique. While studying faces on images or African masks, I use graphite pencil, ink, oil-stick, or acrylic markers. I also utilize my face or body as a model by touching it while drawing. I want the handmade quality of my collages and drawings to attract the interest of viewers. As an artist, I produce vibrant graphic compositions that allow viewers to drift into the realm of artistic expression. Some of my works subtly raises awareness of prejudice, injustice, racial bias, homophobia, human rights, and other concerns while simultaneously being visually appealing.
