Lorgiiioniiim Logo.png

Lorgio is a self-taught digital painter who first took an interest in anything remotely artistic in 2016, where he would use a laptop touch-pad for all his vector illustrations. It was not until late 2017 that he decided to completely switch up and learn something completely new to him; he invested in a tablet and began exploring digital paintings. Through countless hours of practice and studying different techniques he developed his own unique style.

 He has produced pieces for dozens of people, companies and collaborated with various artists around the world; he most notably produced artwork for Oscar winning film “If Beale Street Could Talk”. His work has been noticed and acknowledged by celebrities such as Michael B. Jordan, Regina King, Zazie Beetz, Bryson Tiller, KiKi Layne, just to name a few.

His work has also been featured in several publications in the United States and Canada. Publications such as CBC, CBC Arts, CTV, Shondaland, and more.

Lorgio’s Afrocentric style is influenced particularly by African, African American, and pop culture. His artistic influences are the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, renaissance styles of Titian, Da Vinci and Michelangelo (to name a few). He technique is built off of tradional painting styles uniquely translated into a digital medium.

His sole motivation that started him on his journey was, and still is; curiosity. This is the reason for his mantra: “I am not talented. I am passionately curious.”
