Dennis Lewan, 1943 ~ Fantasy painter

Mr. Lewan, American painter, has developed a style with unique qualities and has become the modern day master of realism, romanticism and fantasy. He says, "I concentrate on picking up where the "Old Masters" left off, by adding camouflaged images in many of my paintings. I like to have a painting tell a story and stimulate the imagination of everyone who views it. 
I like to create in each painting a special place that people want to 'walk into and visit". Art collectors are also attracted by the great depth and detail of each painting and other artists have been inspired to emulate his style. Dennis's paintings have made their way into many countries and into the collections of many celebrities, corporations and banking institutions. Among the awards he has received, the one he seems most proud of is the 1997 Collector's Edition Award of Excellence in the fine art print category. His winning painting titled "The Bearister's Mansion" was chosen by popular vote from the many readers of Collector's Edition Magazine all over North America.
