Baltimore-based Artist Amani Lewis graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in General Fine Arts and Illustration. They enjoy creating imaginative environments that expose the undeniable human connection to nature – despite not being in a physically rural community. The environments Lewis cultivates draw on generations of migration, memory, resilience, loss, and displacement. However, their work draws all these influences together to reveal the healing power of nature.
Exposing the beautiful layers of their hometown, the artist calls for viewers to reconnect to the built environments surrounding them – while listening to and archiving the stories of the inhabitants that make up the city of Baltimore.
