“Through poetic meditation and absurdist observation of socio-political dysfunction I paint a perceived reality. I offer my worldview to the public in the hopes that their reaction will result in a deeper understanding of themselves, the human condition and our place in the universe.” – Noah Lyon

Lyon began a prolific output of underground zines, buttons, t-shirts, music and radio broadcasts as a teenager. Since graduating from the Cooper Union School of Art in 2002 he has exhibited his drawings and paintings at galleries and museums internationally. His works are in the collections of The Brooklyn Museum, MoMA, The Tate Britain, and The Whitney Museum of American Art. His Dumbo studio is primarily dominated by his paintings on canvas.
