Ann Lewis
American

Ann Lewis, otherwise known as the street artist glif!, is best known for her politically charged and often uncommissioned takeovers of public space. As a multidisciplinary activist and artist using painting, installation, and participatory performance, she explores themes related to American identity, power dynamics, and social justice. Her two-dimensional works incorporate subliminal messages hidden in maze-like patterns with austere color palettes, while her larger projects often feature concept-laden materials such as inmate jumpers, toe tags, and women’s underwear. In early 2014, the artist garnered national attention after she installed an oversized police tape banner that read “GENTRIFICATION IN PROGRESS” at 5 Pointz, a former graffiti mecca, in Queens, New York.
