Bobby Lewis - Biography
"Life is but a canvas to the imagination."
Henry David Thoreaou
Bor n and raised in beautiful Chester County in Pennsylvania, Bobby studied art in schools in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Rome, Italy. He has since traveled throughout Africa for months at a time.
He has now attained the freedom he has always year ned for and any artist deserves; simply painting what he wishes and how he wishes with any medium, any size, and any subject matter. Though he focuses on wildlife, he paints numerous different subject matters ranging from cityscapes to interesting people he has come across while traveling.
Oddly enough, coming out of high school he wanted nothing to do with art. He went into college not knowing what direction he wanted to take. He tried graphic design for his first two years of college, though he suddenly realized he wanted complete control over his work.
But most importantly during those first two years of college, his desire for art quickly escalated to an entirely new level. He soon switched to fine arts, and hasn`t looked back since.
Everything seemed to come together to form something much more grand, and meaningful. He connected with something that is almost unexplainable to a person, yet something that could not be learned in a text book.
He was experiencing life in an entirely different way, while at the same time fully expressing that on canvas (or paper) in the truest of forms.
Since then, he continuously seeks to shower a canvas (or paper) with the same excitement and intensity of life that he experienced firsthand. Simply put, there is too much excitement out there not to want to share it.
