New Artist at The Blackbird : Lonnie L. Spikes Jr.

Artist Statement: 

Before language was spoken or written, art was the vehicle to "speak" on ideas, thoughts, and feelings. I don't consider myself a very good speaker, however, I have a lot to say and share. 

I make are based on whatever I am seeing or feeling at any particular moment. My works are what I consider "snapshots" of my thoughts and varied in the use of colors and intensity. Eclectic and prolific, there is a lot to say, do, and share. I prefer both the landscape and surrealistic pieces that produce both stunning and "in your face" type of effects. I have included both styles. 

My medium is watercolor and oils. I love working with its fluidity and most of the time, unpredictable but guarded way it goes down on paper or canvas. I prefer both the landscape and surrealistic pieces that produce both stunning and "in your face" type of effects. I have included both styles. 

I hope my pieces speak to you...

Thank you, 

LONNIE L. SPIKES JR.
