A social experiment by @LikeLewis on Twitter
Everyday, an original painting was created and given away to someone on Twitter – in most cases, to the person who showed the most interest in that particular work. A lot of the works were inspired by the daily talk and pop news on the social networking site.
Since November 2011, more than 70 people have received an original Lewis painting in the mail, including Spike Lee’s son Jackson Lewis Lee and rap phenomenon Lil B. The works have already spread to 12 different countries – 45 different cities around the globe. My ongoing goal is to have more works hanging in houses than any other artist. Ever.
