About the Project Teaching Artist
A self-taught artist, Reg Lewis’ color intense compositions explore the relationship between objects and space. As a native New Yorker, he was deeply influenced by the underground graffiti art culture and has sold his original art as a street vendor in Harlem and the Bronx. Reg has also exhibited his work in multiple galleries in Brooklyn. This is his fifth year working as a teaching artist in the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Before becoming a teaching artist, he earned his Bachelors in creative writing from City College of New York and received his MA in Education from Lehman College as NYC Teaching Fellow. He is entering his eleventh year as an English teacher at Harry S Truman High School in the Bronx – the high school from where he graduated.
Reg currently lives in Harlem, New York with his wife.
