Celebrity clients include HRH The Prince of Kuwait, Christian Lacroix, Danielle Steele, Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey and VOGUE Editor at Large Andre Leon Talley, who refers to Louis St.Lewis as “artistic sable in a world filled with rabbit”.
Equally adept at painting, collage and assemblage, St.Lewis utilizes mythology, religion and Regency era portraiture as inspiration for his eclectic creations. New Orleans Gambit Weekly art critic D. Eric Brookhardt calls Louis’ artworks “an uncanny mix of Sex, Glamour and Antiquity. St.Lewis melds surrealist mystery with the pop pulsations of alternative rock”. The International art magazine ARTPAPERS calls St.Lewis “One of the most talented artists to arise from that mosscovered Gothic chrysalis called the South.” The artist, who maintains studios in North Carolina and New Orleans is available for consultations and welcomes private commissions.
