Performing Art – Washington, DC

A true performance painter, Lionel creates large figurative works as well as an experience the audience will never forget. He paints with his hands while simultaneously dancing to themed music. Dependent on the message, he also incorporates poetry, drama, and digital media. The intention of his performances is to create an experience full of energy, creativity, and inspiration as well as an organic finished piece of work. He graduated from Morehouse College Phi Beta Kappa Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Studio Art in 2011. In his junior year at Morehouse, he discovered his ability to performance paint in a pageant. Being inspired by the loss of his favorite performer, Michael Jackson, Lionel was motivated to create a tribute piece that bore his style of performance painting. He did not win the pageant but found his voice and purpose in art. Lionel has performed at numerous events in the Atlanta University Center, many schools and churches in metro Atlanta, Alabama and Louisiana, the World Congress Center, several festivals including the National Black Arts Festival (2012-13) and Sweet Auburn Fest (2012-13), and the Power of You Teens in Harlem (2014). He has exhibited work at the Roswell Cultural Art Center, the Atlanta Beltline Project (2013), and was recognized by the state of Georgia Legislature in Resolution 772. WWW.LIONELD.COM ...more
