About the Artist
Lawrence R. Armstrong is an award-winning American contemporary artist and Architect who uses his knowledge and creativity in architecture to create masterful works. Armstrong explores the depth of layers by connecting visual essentials through color, form, shapes, and texture. He uses unique details to captivate the attention of viewers by highlighting elements that were buried in the background.
He has exhibited his artwork in solo shows in New York City, Milan, Florence, and Los Angeles. He’s also exhibited his artwork in prestigious art shows, and fairs including the SOFA Art Fair in Chicago, Illinois, the Galleria 360 Emozion Arte show in Florence, Italy, and Art Comes Alive in New York City. His awards include the 2019 ArtTour International Magazine’s Masters Award, the Sandro Botticelli Prize in Florence, Italy, and the Kent State University Advocacy Award.
Lawrence is well known for his strategic, visionary approach to design and business. His focus on creativity and innovation influence all of his artistic endeavors. He keeps sketch books based on remarkable observations and ideas. When Lawrence is not running his architectural practice, he is working in his art studio or traveling with his camera and sketchbooks. His international travels have inspired his art profoundly. Lawrence’s work, both in art and architecture, is an ongoing exploration of layering opposing forces.
“My work, both in Art and Architecture, is an ongoing exploration of the concept of Layers. I have always been aware of, and fascinated by Layers in the Natural and Built Environment. Layers in Space and Time. Layers in Intellect, in Emotion. Synthesis and Interpenetration of Form, of Solid and Void, of Chaos and Order, of Simplicity and Complexity.” – Lawrence R. Armstrong
