About the artist:
ANTHONY LEWELLEN (AntckOne) is a Chicago based multidisciplinary art maker. In his formative years he was an innovative figure within Chicago’s graffiti culture and is still active to this day. 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 and private murals alike. Most recently, Anthony completed West Town's newest and largest mural ("Radial Frequencies") located at 1838 W Chicago Ave in conjunction with this solo show.
Often described as prolific, Lewellyn’s studio work builds upon a highly personalized visual vocabulary rooted in a love of drawing that continues to evolve and grow. The elements of this visual language are quintessentially Midwestern and even more precisely quintessentially Chicago, consistently appearing in his work. The images he creates seem to evoke unspoken narratives written in the urban landscape like images torn from a story. He continues to live and work on the cities North West side.
