painter paul lewin’s new exhibition opens today at the betti ono gallery in oakland

November 4, 2016

Jamaican born visual artist Paul Lewin is a phenom. His style of painting is both primal and pristine, focusing on storytelling through his artwork in ways that Western art rarely accomplishes with the same level of earnest passion. Inspired by his father, a griot in his own right, and the graffiti and science fiction of his childhood, he uses these influences to create portraiture and scenes with the utmost intimacy and attention to detail. Recently, his collection was picked up by the Betti Ono Gallery in Oakland, and will be there through January 16th. Enjoy the collection below and support this genius!
