"I just wanted to see if I could do something different, but the faces just popped out, not letting me ignore them. The color is just for contrast."
- Eric Lewis Basher
High quality print reproduction for your home or office designed by artists living with homelessness or disabilities.
Lewis has a special relationship with art. He says,“Art is the first thing I’ve felt comfortable with for years. It allows me to express my thoughts in a much better way than standing on the corner turning in circles and screaming. It brings order out of the chaos that’s usually in my mind. It has pulled me out of the insanity that my life has become. It quiets the voices in my head, alleviates my anxiety disorders and the thoughts that I have and the things that I see. ”
Lewis works on his art every day, elaborating, "about 20% of the time spent on a piece is actually drawing. The rest of the time is stepping back and watching it form."
Lewis makes art through San Francisco’s Hospitality House, a shelter, drop-in center, employment program, and community arts studio located in San Francisco's Tenderloin District. He is excited to sell his work "to find out where it belongs in the world of art.”
