The Art of Resistance
2021 Season: SOUL-CIAL JUSTICE SUMMER
Lionel Milton shares new and existing work in this special Soul-cial Justice Summer pop-up exhibition. The Art of Resistance is a visual exploration of the power of creative defiance in the face of struggle.
For decades, Lionel’s colorful style has vibrantly demonstrated energy with ubiquitous appeal and eclectic charm. He started his career as a graffiti artist when he was in his teens under the name ELLEONE. Over the years, Lionel has been commissioned and collected by the likes of Uber, Capital One Bank, ESPN, Red Bull, P&G, and Heineken.
Growing up in a culturally-rich place like New Orleans, the city heavily influences and continues to inspire his artwork.
