About Anthony Lewellen
Anthony Lewellen is a Chicago based artist and muralist. In his formative years he was an innovative figure within Chicago’s graffiti culture where early on he made a name for himself in the Midwest and beyond hallmarked by street work that featured a simple bold palette and emotionally complex characters born out of direct observation and digestion of life in the city. His work has come to include a growing body of large-scale public murals along with numerous private commissions. Prolific in the studio as well, his work is always building upon a personalized visual vocabulary rooted in a love of drawing and exploration that continues to evolve and grow over the years, often merging representational and abstract elements. The images he creates often evoke unspoken narratives written in the urban landscape like images torn from a story. He continues to live and work on the North West side of Chicago.
