Anita Lewis

Oceanside, CA



As an American abstract artist in the San Diego area, Anita Lewis’ work emulates her international heritage with love of modern design with natural influences.  Born in Los Angeles, she grew up bilingual with European cultural influences.     

Drawing from her ancestral heritage of artists, craftsmen and engineers, she began oil painting at the tender age of eleven, and sold her first commissioned work at age 14.  After obtaining  a BA in art/ interior design, she spent almost 20 years in Europe  broadening her design and art careers.  Back in the US, she continued her paths in high-profile design and abstract art in the San Diego area, earning increased international artistic recognition, with solo and international art shows such as Art Expo New York, Arte Classica Buenos Aires, Art San Diego and Spectrum Indian Wells. Her art is collected wolrdwide and represented in fine art galleries internationally with a collector base of public and commercial spaces, high-end architectural homes, both nationally and internationally.  Lewis’ work has been featured in various art and design magazines, such as Art Business News, Fine, LUXE, and  American Art Collector and has been interviewed on several San Diego TV networks.  Cliff Johns, cousin to Jasper Johns, has done write-ups on her work.

 Lewis embraces rare use of oils in modern abstract work. Stark linearity dissolves into abstraction, yet with detail in the obscure.  There is a freedom to her work, but an underlying structure prevents chaos, pulling the pieces together, creating stories for the viewer. Going forward, Lewis is exploring the increasingly popular world of ballet, auto-racing themes, and other abstracted themes. ▪
