To the casual observer who defines art as impressionistic “still life” paintings, your perceptions are about to change. The art of Lionel Milton is representative of a life in motion; vivid, vibrant and real. A rich tapestry of the people and places that make up a city with a notorious zest for living.
Stylistically polished, yet unapologetic in its depiction of the honesty and raw beauty that is New Orleans. A city with not only a confluence of waterways but of people, of cultures, and of lives, spinning in an orbit of close quarters – yet with a surprising sense of harmony and balance. His work captures these relationships; the color and the shape, the soul and the rhythm, the pieces that form the whole.
Come in, taste the flavor, feel the funk – and most of all, welcome aboard.
