Paul Lewin is a self-taught artist born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1973 and moved to the U.S. with his family in 1977. While he currently resides in Oakland, CA, he grew up in Miami, FL. Raised by a family of storytellers, Lewin grew fond of his father’s stories of the old country in Jamaica and became inspired by the cultures he was introduced to as a child. Initially starting with pencil and paper to create his own stories and representations of himself, he continued to paint in acrylics as his medium.
