Artwork by Mr. LightsAndPaint

Determined and ambitious for something new and great, Mr. LightsAndPaint has a unique understanding of the mechanics of artistic talent, which he creatively demonstrates through various works of art. Using multiple mediums and color schemes his artwork develops a rhythm of its own. Lights and Paint…more than just a painting and a visual show, it is artwork that comes alive.  “My mission is for you never to get bored looking at one of my pieces. You can even customize the color of the LED lights to your preference or mood.” explains Mr. LightsAndPaint.
