Artist Philip Lewis has been fascinated by fine art, since the age of 9 years old. The influence of fantasy films, hip-hop, comic books and graphic novels led him to begin his journey into the world of art and design. While on summer vacation in Georgia, at age 16, he traveled to a local mall looking for work. He watched an airbrush artist hard at work spraying custom t-shirts. Somehow Philip bartered his talent of fantasy art and graffiti, for a 6-hour crash course in airbrushing. Ever hungry for knowledge to feed him he decided later that year to take fine art in high school. To his surprise, untapped potential began to explode on the canvas and other media. That was the start of a very enjoyable career in the art industry.
