Les Caison III is an award-winning artist from North Carolina. A diverse upbringing and public education complete with critical accomplishments in music and visual art inform his creativity. Les paints with oil and illustrates with pencil, often intertwining the two, creating scenes of life every-day. His mixed media paintings tell stories. They offer something for the viewer to think about for a while.
Caison’s ability continues to flourish — so does his recognition. His work is mentioned in numerous publications including the March 2010 issue of North Carolina-based “Our State” Magazine. His commission projects and patrons span many states. Les is collected internationally and has over 120 exhibitions under his belt – more than 30 of them are solo efforts.
Les is from Greensboro, NC. He graduated from Appalachian State University with a BFA in Studio Art. He promotes other visual artists as the Manager for the 2016-2017 Inaugural Art Wall Project at Four Saints Brewing Company in Asheboro.
In his free time (ha) Les can be found working on an array of commissions from tattoo designs to portraits from life. He is an associate member of Winston-Salem’s favorite art venue, Delurk Gallery Collective and enjoys his time working with fourth grade art students via the Guilford County’s Artists-In-Schools program.
