ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lawrence Atoigue, professionally known as Naturel, is an illustrative based artist who’s quickly emerging in today’s postmodern scene. His futuristic illustrations have successfully blended methods of Pop and Cubism with a Surrealist vision. Considered an influencer himself with tens of thousands of Instagram fans, his talents have attracted the eyes and support of celebrity clients such as Rihanna, LeBron James, Spike Lee, Swizz Beatz and countless others.
Born and raised in Prince Georges County, Maryland, Naturel’s work is deeply rooted within today’s urban millennial community. After studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, he began a career as a Designer and Art Director for several notable fashion brands. Moving forward after 10 years of industry work, Naturel’s craft evolved into the highly sought after fine art paintings and prints that followers are mostly familiar with today. Selling out his debut solo show at Poppington Art Gallery in New York, Naturel began to exhibit his work to much fanfare at galleries from Miami to London.
Shortly after his New York exhibition, the artist began painting murals at several invitational festivals such as Pangea Seed’s “Seawalls” in Miami and Cozumel, Mexico, and the popular PowWow! Hawaii. Naturel’s countless collaborative projects with brands like Crooks & Castles, Nike, Pepsi, Fiat and others, have all seamlessly brought together his foundation as a designer with his recently mastered fine artistry to make for exciting and successful campaigns and products.
