Amani Lewis is a Baltimore-based artist whose mixed media paintings foreground the subject's vitality and spirit. Their process-oriented approach joins photography, digital collage, screen-printing, and other surface textures in turning large-scale portraits into concentrated sites of vibrancy, heat, healing, safety, and magic. With and through these bright, electric monographs, Lewis recognizes the power and agency in each individual's narrative, cumulatively raising their voice for communities at large. Recent notable exhibitions include solo show, Amani Lewis: Subjective Nature, August Wilson African American Cultural Center (Pittsburgh, PA. 2019), and group exhibitions, Black Voices / Black Microcosm. CF Hill, (Stockholm, Sweden, 2020)., BLACK VOICES: Friend of Mine. Ross-Sutton Gallery, (New York, NY, 2021), and Shattered Glass. Jeffrey Deitch, (Los Angeles, CA, 2021). In Fall of 2021, Lewis will open a solo exhibition at Salon94 in New York, New York.
