F. Lennox Campello (aka Lenny) is a well known voice of the Mid-Atlantic Art scene, where as an independent curator, art dealer, art critic and consultant he has organized many important shows in the Washington D.C. capital city area.

Lenny came to the United States from Cuba with his parents when he was 10. The family settled in Brooklyn, but he was restless, so he forged his father’s signature and joined the Navy at 17. The military paid for him to major in art and math at the University of Washington in Seattle, and then he was off, stationed all over the globe but keeping up with his art all the while. He held an art show in Beirut and created illustrations for Stars and Stripes newspaper. His figurative artwork is the basis of his solo exhibition along with works in a variety of media and subjects, including the artist’s favorite subject: A 30-year-old affair with Mexican icon Frida Kahlo. In his “Obsessive Drawings” series, Lenny’s works provide insight into his own life, and others.
