Levi A. Lancaster, Artist - Abstract Mixed Media Landscape


Levi A. Lancaster

Artist - Abstract Mixed Media Landscape

Who or what has been your greatest influence on your style?

My style mixes controllable and uncontrollable abstracted techniques to produce bright whimsical landscapes. Through trial and error plus inspiration pulled from names such as Van Gogh, Munch or Dali; the styles produced are visually appealing to a vast audience.

How did you get started in your career?

I’ve spent the last 25 years in the hospitality, medical, retail and finance management industry. I graduated with my diploma in Hospitality Management and later decided to complete Interior Design school. I hold a 4.0 GPA in both disciplines, but life has a way of pulling us in different directions so; I’ve only been painting landscapes since 2020 shortly before COVID. The artistic works have increased since then and shall continue.

What struggles or barriers did you face or are you facing to promote yourself and your work?

I am fortunate to have works currently installed at the University of Missouri Saint Louis and Washington University in as well as some gallery showings but the issue for me comes down to my price points. What I mean by that is; I price my pieces based on my time and materials. The time it takes to produce 1 of my pieces can take up to 2 weeks simply due to my unique artistic techniques which gives that color pop and abstracted look. Therefore, I’m struggling with making pieces more affordable for all audiences.

What life lessons have you learned and how have they influenced your style?

My mother is mentally disabled; has been since I was 13 years old, and I’ve been taking care of her ever since. I’ve learned that each person lives a separate reality from everyone else. I’ve learned emotional intelligence on a level not many get to experience. I’ve learned patience. I’ve learned to pay very close attention to every single detail at a given moment and I’ve learned that I do not have total control over everything, and this is why I stated my style mixes controllable and uncontrollable techniques to produce bright and interesting landscapes.
