lewis lain is a narrative visual artist and illustrator from Chicago. He uses “resonant” materials (re-claimed windows, found-glass and recycled cardboard) as tools to reveal an ongoing story by an “enlightened” typeface designer named 53947. The resulting paintings contain bold-color, elevated layers and interlocking “linework.” Further exploration with resonant material led to an ongoing cardboard sculptural series, “cardboard forge."
he is currently available for freelance projects.
