Description

A stunning and poignant tribute to the late John Lewis, the man Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. called "The Boy from Troy" but as a man he became the "Conscience of the Congress".

His fearlessness and relentlessness in the face of adversity, and willingness to sacrfice his body and even his life as a member of the Civil Rights Movement and founding member of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee is what led to the Voting Rights Act and true change in America for the oppressed and disenfranchised. 

"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble." - John Lewis

Born in Brooklyn New York, Andrew discovered that he had a gift of drawing at an early age. He began expressing himself through pencil on paper in elementary school and soon began receiving formal Art awards, his first being at age nine. The signal was clear to those around him or to anyone who viewed his early work, that Andrew had a true talent. Andrew continued to win awards throughout junior and senior high school. His artworks remained displayed at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn New York. Andrew continued his education and art expression at Kingsboro Community College. It was during this time in his life that he developed a passion for oil on canvas.
