Ethan Lemon is a British painter whose work focuses on portraiture. His signature style emerged from the fast nature of using spray paint, which he was exposed to as a young adult partaking in graffiti culture. Ethan's main practice is still on the street, where he spray paints large murals of personal acquaintances as well as historical figures from his home town Stoke on Trent and people from Manchester, where he now resides and works.


Ethan employs a signature colour palette of monochromatic greens which can be recognised instantly in the busy streets of any city. Beyond the street Ethan also has a studio practice where he merges portraiture with other elements such as landscape and still life as well as experimenting with various mediums. He has exhibited and won prizes in various group exhibitions in England. He has also painted murals in numerous cities around the UK such as Glasgow, Bristol and Plymouth and internationally in Toronto and Melbourne.
