Amani Lewis (b. Andrews Airforce Base, 1994) 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.

Lewis received a BFA in General Fine Arts and Illustration from MICA in 2016. 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 opened their solo exhibition, Nothing Remains the Same, at Salon94 in New York, New York and in Fall 2022, Lewis debuted It’s from the light that we are found, blessed and guided at LGDR in Paris.
